Arthur Fidel Argomaniz
Senior Program Analyst
He, Him, His
I currently serve as the Project Manager for the Parent Leader Network, support work to increase racial equity and parent engagement with First 5 Orange County, and work with several national parent advisory and leadership groups. I previously served on the Partnership Support Team for First 5 LA’s Best Start placed-based initiative and was part of the monitoring team for the Humboldt County, California child welfare system in meeting their system change goals. I also manage CSSP’s Los Angeles office.
I do this work because
Families and communities are the experts—this is amplified when they have a voice in systems building and decision making.
I am most proud of
Supporting the annual Healing Communities Conference, bringing native and indigenous healers and teachers to share and build with the community.
