For the Past 8 years he has been working with the STAND Projects, a program of Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant trails in Sacramento. During this time, he has assisted in the development and management of eight successfully grant funded programs bring in over 2.8 million dollars for his local community. From this work he now moves onto Boston to The Fenway Institute where he’ll fill out the team of three staff at the National LGBT Tobacco Control Network. Gustavo says, “After working with the American Legacy Foundation I always wanted to do more work on a national level. I’ve worked in the National LGBT Tobacco Control Network for years and I really appreciate all the great people and amazing work going on.
