Jesús Armas


Jesús Armas is a Venezuelan political leader who has dedicated his career to promoting democracy and human rights in his country. As the president of Ciudadanía Sin Límites, Jesús has been at the forefront of grassroots mobilization efforts to increase equitable access to water and energy, as well as using technology to map and record power and water supply failures in Caracas. Jesús has an extensive background in public service, having served as a member of the City Council for five years from 2013 to 2018 and being a pre-candidate for Mayor of Caracas. He is also a director of the political party Primero Justicia, which promotes freedom and democracy in Venezuela. Through his leadership, Ciudadanía Sin Límites has created a neighborhood network where community members share information and propose solutions and goals for their communities. This approach has helped thousands of citizens gain access to drinking water and energy and created direct support to 1,200 children and families living in five low-income communities. Jesús has facilitated opportunities for community members to secure positions in food preparation, receive advice and guidance from nutritionists, and participate in training opportunities focused on democratic values. Jesús received a Chevening Fellowship to complete his master's degree in public policy at the University of Bristol, and he holds a bachelor's degree in engineering from the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in Caracas.
