is a liberation psychologist, social justice educator and leadership coach.

Dr. Quiñones-Rosado is Founder & Principal of c-INTEGRAL,through which he teaches, trains and coaches people in the principles and practices of consciousness-in-action.

In the 1990s, Dr. Quiñones founded and directed the Institute for Latino Empowerment, an organization that was dedicated to anti-oppression leadership development and anti-racist community organizing in Massachusetts. Subsequently, he co-founded Ilé: Organizers for Consciousness-in-Action, which provided anti-oppression leadership development and engaged in social justice struggles in Puerto Rico.

A racial justice educator-organizer, Dr. Quiñones co-developed and conducts the Latino Challenges Toward Racial Justice workshop for people living and working in Latino communities across the United States.
