Hello! I’m Eric Gonzalez Alfaro.
I have been working in the social and economic justice space for the past fourteen years of my career. I’ve worked in government, foundations, civil liberties and immigrant justice advocacy organizations, and in the labor movement.
While I have focused on my career for the past decade, the skills associated with my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and expertise in photography have always been central to the way in which I advocate, offer perspective, and demonstrate, with empathy, the harsh realities and emotions that people in our state experience.
I have shot for KEXP, STG Presents, Broadway Across America, and been published on NPR, The Stranger, The Reader and Shout Weekly.
I currently serve as Commissioner of the Washington State Commission on Hispanic Affairs, Board Secretary of the Unemployment Law Project, and a board member of Mi Centro (previously known as Centro Latino). I previously served on the State Dept. of Labor & Industries’ Washington Industrial Safety and Health Act Advisory Board, and as chairperson of the Healthy Washington and Farm Worker Coalitions.
I have dedicated my career to promoting meaningful social and economic justice that is generational, and long overdue.
