Elizabeth Bobo has developed her passion around empowering Spanish-speaking populations. Elizabeth has spent significant time abroad when not working with the New Orleans area Latino community, working for various non-profits, from advocating against human rights violations in Argentina to facilitating community development projects in Nicaragua. Because of this, she has grown to understand and appreciate the necessity of empowering systems to create pathways out of poverty. Elizabeth is now the Bilingual Programs Coordinator at Second Harvest Food Bank, where she uses her skills to foster community partnerships and advocate for language access. She recently taught her first Spanish class in the Fall of 2016 at Tulane University, with an aim to ignite students’ interest in Spanish-speaking cultures in New Orleans and abroad. She can also be heard on WRBH, the local Radio for the Blind, for which she reads her favorite Spanish-language literature.
