Roberto RevelesRoberto A. Reveles the Founding President of Somos America - We are America.

As a member of the Arizona Hispanic Community Forum, Reveles is actively involved in promoting civic participation by Latinos. He seeks opportunities for public dialogue on the immigration policy, which he faults for spawning both death in Arizona’s desert and hostility against Latinos. He is a volunteer with Humane Borders that maintains water stations in the southern Arizona desert. He seeks to promote meaningful and comprehensive reform of immigration policy at the federal level and is committed to defense of the undocumented immigrant community against hostile public policies in Arizona.

He was founding President of Somos America - We Are America, the coalition of community groups that organized the historic Phoenix march of April 10, 2006 that drew over 200,000 participants in support of the immigrant community.

Born in Miami, Arizona, Reveles graduated from Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. He retired after 30 years in public policy and community relations in both the public and private sectors.

Reveles served as a congressional staffer for five congressmen in Washington, D.C. for a total of 24 years. He began his service with Arizona’s Representatives Stewart L. Udall, and Morris K. Udall. He was also on staff for Representative George F. Senner Jr. of Arizona, and two Representatives from New Jersey. Reveles retired from Capitol Hill as staff director for Morris K. Udall, who was Chairman of the Interior and Insular Affairs Committee.

Reveles began his second career in the private sector as manager, later vice president for Government Affairs of Homestake Mining Company, headquartered in San Francisco, California, where he was responsible for designing, implementing and communicating corporate actions on government public policies.

Since retirement, Reveles resides in Gold Canyon, where he is active in community affairs. He is also the co-founder and president of the Board of Directors of the Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum in his hometown of Miami.
