Amaury Nora is a born and raised Texan. His interests are: Latino politics, social justice, international affairs, public policy, and humanitarianism and history. You can find this crazy vato over at ¡Para Justicia y Libertad! where this Hispanic causin’ panic is striking fear into the hearts of salsa-deniers. On his blog, he addresses both contemporary political issues that affect this nation and Latino issues which range from Latino politics to anything dealing with the Latino community. His blog fuses an intense level of research with an instinctive feel for the zeitgeist and a sense of empathy that combines to produce commentary that is, in the literal meaning of the word, unique.
He has a degree in Government from University of Texas at Austin and a Master’s Degree in Social Work. He has worked as a community development specialist at the local government level and as a grant writer and program evaluator specializing in outcome assessments for several local non-profits.
