Barack Obama has tapped another nonprofit official for a role in his administration.
Cecilia Muñoz, senior vice president of research, advocacy, and legislation at the National Council of La Raza, a Latino advocacy group in Washington, will become Mr. Obama’s director of intergovernmental affairs.
Last week, at a forum of 2,500 community organizers, Ms. Muñoz spoke to The Washington Post about the goals of the administration.
Valerie Jarrett, a senior advisor to Mr. Obama, also spoke at the event, which was sponsored by the Gamaliel Foundation, in Chicago.
