Verónica Bayetti Flores

Cofounder, Center for Advancing Innovative Policy

Headshot of Veronica Bayetti Flores

Verónica Bayetti Flores, M.P.H., is cofounder of the Center for Advancing Innovative Policy (CAIP), where she helps the organization’s partners to think big about policy change goals. She has led national policy and movement-building work on the intersections of immigrants’ rights, health care access, young parenthood, police accountability, and LGBTQ liberation. Along with multi-issue expertise, Bayetti brings strong relationships with leaders and advocates around the country, deep expertise in intersectional policy analysis, and the big-picture strategy required to develop timely left-flank policy platforms that shift movements toward the visionary coalition-building needed to win. She has worked with national, state, and local organizations to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought to decrease the scope and harms of policing and immigration enforcement, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. She is a New York City–based queer, immigrant Latina who brings her experience as a policy analyst, writer, speaker, facilitator, and strategic communicator to CAIP. Bayetti holds an M.P.H. from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.
