Eduardo Angulo – Founder of SKCE

Eduardo Angulo is first a community organizer, a political activist and an advocate for social justice and education equity. His passion has always been the educational success of youth and to see young Latino/a/x leaders grow and represent their community in the institutions that govern, represent and serve them.

It was working with youth in the juvenile detention camps of Los Angeles that sparked Eduardo’s passion for education equity. Eduardo co-founded the Salem/Keizer Coalition for Equality in 1999 while finishing his degrees at Linfield, graduating in 2000 at the age of 42 with double majors and minors in Political Science, Spanish, Pre-Law and World Philosophies.

Eduardo left SKCE in 2013, and worked with Restorative Justice programs and mentored inmates returning to their communities to increase their chances of a successful new life. He is currently a consultant and mentor at Capaces Leadership Institute for Latino parents and young adults becoming leaders. He is also a professional Spanish translator and interpreter.
