MPA LLC Welcomes District Strategist LUZ SOSA
Luz Sosa - Latino Outreach Organizer
Citizen Action of Wisconsin
M.S.A.E. Marquette University, B.A. Marquette University
Luz was born in Asuncion, the capital and largest city of Paraguay, in South America.
She moved to the United States with her family when she was 16 years old. Even though she did not know how to speak English, through hard work, she successfully finished her last two years of high school at Whitefish Bay High School.
In 2007, she graduated from Marquette University with double majors in Economics and Political Science, and earning two Master’s degrees. After graduation, Luz worked for NAMWOLF, a non-profit organization that helps minority and women’s law firms thrive and succeed.
Luz also worked for Northwestern Mutual as a financial representative, and then as a general manager at Helios, a manufacturing company of solar panels. Although her private sector jobs were good experiences, she longed for an opportunity to positively influence students and, with that in mind, became an Economics instructor at the Milwaukee Technical College (MATC) where she still teaches to this day.
A year ago, she started working for Citizen Action of Wisconsin where she is in charge of helping the Latino communities on issues regarding Health Care, Economic Equality, and Voting Rights. Luz is also very active in the community, giving her time and support wherever she can.
She is a member and treasurer of the American Federation of Teachers, Local 212 (the union of MATC). She is also the executive vice-president the state union, AFT-Wisconsin and a board member of the Wisconsin Labor History Society.
And, on top of all that she is the vice-president of Raise Wisconsin, an organization that champions the fight to raise the minimum wage for the working class.
Last but not least, she is the proud mother of Maddox, who is now 4 years old.
