Gustavo Torres, executive director of Casa, and a national leader on immigrants' rights, is a remarkably optimistic leader. His organization not only serves, it deeply engages, day laborers and domestic workers who are vulnerable to abuse, deportation and financial exploitation. Rather than seeing themselves as victims, they become informed members of Casa, with a vested interest in the well-being of the broader community. Casa has now taken the next step in building power and political influence by formed a 501c4. As Gustavo tells, "It's not that radical if you care about your community."
