Joseph DeLaTorre
MPA1, Class of 2020
III - Domestic Policy
Whittier, California
“After the MPA program, I hope to work with a policy team dedicated to improving consumer and worker protections. I feel that balancing these markets through effective policy is an essential step in combating rising inequality, a topic in which I am extremely interested given my blue-collar background and personal experience during the recession. The MPA program offers the opportunity to learn and gain practical experience working with many of the quantitative tools I would use in such a position.” (Hometown: Whittier, California)
