For more than a decade, Artemio served on the Board of Directors of the Worker Justice Center of New York, a statewide organization that pursues justice for those denied human rights with a focus on agricultural and other low-wage industries. He also served on the boards of New York City’s Metropolitan Council on Housing and ABC No Rio, a center for arts and activism in New York’s Lower East Side.
