Cecilia Iglesias | Founder & Director of Latino Engagement | Parent Union

Cecilia “Ceci” Iglesias founded the Parent Union to provide a voice and a resource to parents who often find themselves marginalized in the education of their own children. She worked for 20 years as an administrative manager for the County of Orange, overseeing multi-million-dollar contracts that assisted families in crisis; and served as legislative staffer and policy adviser for a state senator, specializing in education and human services. She was twice elected to the board of the Santa Ana Unified School District and to the Santa Ana City Council, and founded the nonprofit Santa Ana Family Empowerment (S.A.F.E.) to provide homework assistance to deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
