Aramis is a Policy Fellow with the Minnesota Council on Latino Affairs in the areas of health and education. In his role, Aramis tracks, researches, and analyzes policies that affect Latinx communities across the state.

Raised in Kansas City but born in Puerto Rico to Puerto Rican and Dominican parents, Aramis witnessed the hurdles millions of migrant families face to survive in America.
