Jose Lopez, Arlenis Morel and Theo Oshiro took the reins of Make the Road New York, one of New York’s most powerful immigrant rights groups, in April. The trio helped secure $2.1 billion in unemployment benefits for undocumented immigrants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the state’s Excluded Workers Fund.
