Agatha So is a Policy Analyst with the Wealth-Building Initiative at UnidosUS (formerly National Council of La Raza).

Prior to her work with UnidosUS, So was an Open Society Institute-Baltimore Fellow, working directly with Latino families seeking affordable homeownership opportunities.

Ms. So serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Latino Providers Network, Inc. in Baltimore, Maryland.
