In recent years, Fierro served on the City of Racine Mayoral Advisory Board, Immigration Task Force Chairman for the Racine Interfaith Coalition, the Racine Unified School District Middle School Transformation Committee and the RUSD Diversity and Equity Task Force.
Fierro was elected president of local council 347 of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), and enthusiastically participated in a host of volunteer activities too numerous to mention.
