The White House announced Tuesday that Cecilia Munoz, a longtime civil rights activist and the White House director of intergovernmental affairs, is now director of the Domestic Policy Council.

Munoz, formerly a top official at the National Council of La Raza, has been a key liaison for the administration with Latinos, a critical voting bloc that’s been increasingly upset over President Obama’s immigration policies.
