Bio

A fifth-generation Arizonan, Flavio proudly embraces his family's Mexican-American heritage and believes that West Phoenix's cultural diversity is a strength. As a grandson of both a U.S. veteran and an Arizona copper miner, and a nephew of a United Farm Worker organizer, Flavio grew up with a deep admiration for the civil and labor rights movements and is committed to building off the progress made by those before him. Flavio is a proud first-generation college graduate. He earned his bachelor's degree in political science and philosophy with an emphasis in social justice from Loyola University Chicago, where he had the honor of serving as student body president. As President, Flavio utilized his platform to create a scholarship fund for undocumented students ineligible for federal financial aid. Having benefited from strong mentors throughout his life, he understands the importance of paying it forward and centers this value in his work. As a first-hand witness of the harmful effects of our broken immigration system and with an understanding of Arizona's important role as a border state, Flavio pursued his master's degree in migration studies from the University of San Francisco. There, he served as a live-in volunteer at a migrant shelter where he assisted newly arrived immigrant families transitioning into daily life in the U.S. Seeing how policy issues ranging from education, housing, and public health each intersect with one another, Flavio went on to work for Rep. Raul M. Grijalva, the Dean of Arizona's congressional delegation, as a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Graduate Fellow in Washington, D.C. In this role, he handled the housing and economic policy portfolio for Arizona's third congressional district. Since returning home to Phoenix, Flavio has dedicated his time to protecting the sanctity of our democracy by making elections more accessible to all voters. Each of Flavio's experiences as an educator, Congressional staffer, and in the nonprofit sector provides him with the skills to help address the district's most pressing needs while creating opportunities for future generations. Flavio lives in West Phoenix with his wife, Liz. He currently serves as a Democratic precinct committee person in Legislative District 30's Granada precinct.
