Hergit Penzo Llenas, aka CoCo, is the National Director of Latino Outreach for The American Federation for Children.

Her role at a non-profit organization in Las Vegas called The Public Education Foundation (PEF) allowed her to rebuilt The Family Learning Program, which drastically improved the school climate inside multiple K-5 campuses in Nevada.

Her experience working with families in inner city schools and with PEF brought her to the school choice movement where she has worked to build grassroots advocacy among the Latino community.
