Join United Latinx Fund (ULF) and Latino Coalition of Los Angeles (LCLA) for our new weekly online series - Fireside CharLA - covering the latest developments on the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our Latinx community. The series premiered on April 16 and featured Alejandra Velazquez, ULF board member and Sr. Director of Public Affairs at Oportun.
On the heels of Governor Gavin Newsom's landmark announcement earmarking $125M in disaster relief for undocumented immigrants, learn about Oportun, a trusted, community lender that provides immediate financial relief to those who do not qualify for traditional lending products offered by commercial banks. Oportun specializes in lending solutions for unbanked and underbanked individuals and families with little to no credit by providing smaller, emergency loans to cover daily needs.
Ms. Velásquez oversees Oportun’s public policy, advocacy and grassroots partnerships across nine states and has more than fifteen years of experience in public policy, advocacy, coalition building, and multicultural/multilingual outreach
