About our Summit Closing Speaker:

The Honorable Julián Castro
Former Secretary, U.S. Housing and Urban Development

Julián Castro served as the 16th Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under President Barack Obama from 2014-2017. Before serving in the Cabinet, Secretary Castro was the Mayor of his native San Antonio, Texas — the youngest mayor of a Top 50 American city at the time. In 2012, he gave a rousing keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention, during which he described the American Dream as a relay to be passed from generation to generation. In 2018, Castro founded Opportunity First, an organization created to invest in the next generation of progressive leaders across the country. In October 2018, Little, Brown published Castro’s memoir, An Unlikely Journey: Waking Up from My American Dream. On January 12, 2019, Secretary Castro announced his candidacy for President of the United States. Follow Julián Castro on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. and
