Cecilia Muñoz, Vivian Graubard, and the Public Interest Technology program were featured in an NBC Latino article. 

The highest ranking Latina in the Obama administration as well as a young Latina who spearheaded major White House technology changes have taken on a new job — aiming to transform the way non-profits use tech.
An innovative program will work to pair technological best practices with the work of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), particularly those serving vulnerable communities.
The new Public Interest Technology Initiative at New America — a Washington think tank seeking to bridge the gap between technology and public policy — will be helmed by Cecilia Muñoz, New America’s VP of Policy & Technology, and Vivian Graubard, the group’s Director of Strategy.

Prior to joining New America, Graubard worked at the White House under President Obama where she was a founding member of the United States Digital Service and also served as a senior advisor and chief of staff to the United States Chief Technology Officer.
