Maria Teresa Kumar Education

Although Maria moved to America at 4 years old, it took five years for her and her mother to become naturalized US citizens.
At one point, her father became ill, and her mother — classified as Latino despite her citizenship — was unable to access services and resources where they were living in Sonoma, California.It was through this experience that Maria came to realize the need for Latino rights in America, and thus became interested in politics.

In 1996, Maria graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a Bachelor’s degree in international affairs and economics.The University of California (UC) is a public university system in the U.S. state of California. Under the California Master Plan for Higher Education, the University of California is a part of the state’s three-system public higher education plan, which also includes the California State University system and the California Community Colleges System.

The University of California was founded on March 23, 1868, and operated temporarily in Oakland before moving to its new campus in Berkeley in 1873. In March 1951, the University of California began to reorganize itself into something distinct from its first campus at Berkeley, with Robert Gordon Sproul remaining in place as the first systemwide President and Clark Kerr becoming the first Chancellor of UC Berkeley. However, the 1951 reorganization was stalled by resistance from Sproul and his allies, and it was not until Kerr succeeded Sproul as President that UC was able to evolve into a true university system from 1957 to 1960.

Maria Teresa Kumar Career

Kumar began her career as a legislative aide to Democratic congressman Vic Fazio. She later attended the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where she recognized the importance of technology in improving the gap in equality in Latino lives. She began working with the Latino advocacy group, Voto Latino in 2004. Currently based in Washington DC, the organization uses marketing campaigns and technology to encourage Latinos to participate in the political process.

In the beginning, Voto Latino’s mission was to increase voter registration among Latinos in the U.S. Later, Voto Latino partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau to increase participation in the 2010 census. “To spread the word, Voto Latino and MTV’s Latino channel Tr3s aired public service announcements, created a hashtag on Twitter and established a nationwide network of bloggers”. Kumar and her team also launched the ‘Be Counted’ campaign, which included a bilingual mobile phone app which enabled Latinos to fill out the 2010 census on their phones. The organization is also currently assisting Latinos in navigating the health exchanges associated with the Affordable Care Act.

Under Kumar’s direction, Voto Latino played a primary role in registering over half a million new Latino voters. In June, 2018, the organization announced that it has set a new goal of registering one million voters by 2020 and is planning to spend $7 million on the project.

Kumar was on-air on MSNBC when the election was called for President Trump.

“There was a cameraman, an older Jewish gentleman, who literally mouthed the words ‘I’m sorry’ to me, and he had tears running down his face,” said Kumar, president and CEO of Latino political group Voto Latino.“It was a moment in which Latinos and the Jewish community immediately understood who we had just voted into office.”Kumar, an advocate for increased Latino political participation, compared election night 2016 to another night she spent at the Rockefeller Center — the night President Obama won the White House for the first time.

In 2008, Kumar said, “all of Rockefeller Center was a concert, there were people everywhere. Outside, the skating rink was packed.”In 2016 at 8 p.m., “the place was basically empty.”Kumar said the election made her work change overnight.Voto Latino ran a voter information hotline during the campaigns, a service Kumar says quickly became a support line for immigrants, particularly “Dreamers” — immigrants who arrived in the United States illegally as children.

“It was very surreal, the whole thing,” she said. “A lot of people were going to be waking up to a very different world.”
