An expert in resettlement and forced migration of Puerto Rican women and families is taking over temporary leadership of one of New Haven’s leading Latino organizations as it seeks its second new executive director in 16 months.

The temporary executive director is Brunilda Pizarro. She is stepping in at the agency, JUNTA for Progressive Action, as Daniels Reyes steps down after 16 months as executive director
