Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, Constituent Service Representative

Robert Matos-Moran is a passionate social justice advocate, professionally and in his free time. Originally from Kearny, NJ and a graduate of The College of New Jersey, Robert believes in service through community-building, empowering untold stories, and facilitating community-based solutions. This axiom drives his daily work to effectuate change in his community from the ground up. He is particularly interested in the intersectionality of progressive values and the importance of representation in all aspects.

As a first-generation American, Robert understands the power that comes along with communities of color seeing themselves represented in “what they want to be when they grow up.” He uses this lived-in experience surrounding his upbringing to bring together diverse stakeholders, activists, organizers, and elected officials through his involvement in the non-profit sector, state and federal campaigns, and government. As a proud Latinx man, Robert seeks to remove barriers to success and empower communities of color and vulnerable populations.    

Robert is currently a Constituent Service Representative for Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman. His portfolio includes immigration, veteran affairs, healthcare, and education. He previously worked on the campaigns of Governor Phil Murphy and Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, in addition to several local races throughout New Jersey. In his free time, he enjoys supporting the arts, cheering on his favorite soccer team Everton FC, exploring new places, and playing tennis.
