Rojas received an MA in City Planning and an MS in Architecture Studies from MIT. He is founder of the Latino Urban Forum and has written and lectured extensively about how culture and immigration are transforming the American landscape. He has received awards from the Puffin Foundation, California Community Foundation and American Planning Association Los Angeles.
