Bruni Pizarro

Bruni Pizarro (she/ella) combines her creative and advocacy skills as the Director of Brand Strategy and co-founder of For La Diáspora, a cultural branding and design studio. Her work focuses on connecting brands with the Latine community through culturally-driven design and bilingual communications. From 2020 to 2023, Bruni served as executive director of Junta for Progressive Action, the oldest Latine social service in the Greater New Haven, CT area.

Bruni is also a writer and social science researcher. She connects her lived experience as a Puerto Rican from the diaspora with research and visual storytelling to bring forth a racialized and class-based understanding of the downstream impacts of climate disasters on oppressed communities of color. Bruni’s most recent work on the effects of climate-induced disasters on Puerto Rican women was published in the University of Connecticut Law Review (2023).

She received a Master’s of Environmental Science from the Yale School of the Environment and completed her undergraduate studies at Vanderbilt University.  Bruni serves on the Fellow Advisory Committee for the Robert & Patricia Switzer Foundation. She co-chairs the Environmental Justice/DEIJ committee as a Board member of Save the Sound, an organization committed to environmental advocacy. She also supports equity efforts for the State of Connecticut as a member of Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro’s Hispanic Advisory Committee and as Commissioner for the Commission on Women, Children, Seniors, Equity, & Opportunity.
