“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” ― Audre Lorde
Estevan Muñoz-Howard joined the Marguerite Casey Foundation by way of the Piper Fund, where he worked as a senior program officer leading the fund's Money in Politics Reform grantmaking program. During his tenure, Estevan organized donors, convened field partners, and helped raise and steward funding for community-based organizations working to build durable power for communities of color and create the inclusive democracy our nation has never had.
Estevan is a tireless organizer and advocate for inclusive representation and racial equity in our democracy. He has been working to amplify the voices of BIPOC communities for over 15 years, and helped lead the successful Honest Elections Seattle campaign of 2015—the historic initiative to implement the world's first Democracy Voucher program.

He is passionate about democracy, community organizing, and the diffusion of power. Estevan is a graduate of the University of Puget Sound.
