Immigrant Rights and Empowerment Program Manager
Gabriela graduated from UC Berkeley in December 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and a minor in Ethnic Studies with a concentration in Chicano Studies. For the past five years she has been involved in fighting for social justice with student groups at UC Berkeley, working in areas such as immigrant rights, the DREAM Act and other local Bay Area issues. Her interest for the community continues with her work at Street Level Health Project, working with different immigrant communities in the Fruitvale / San Antonio area. In the future, Gabriela wants to pursue a law degree in public interest law, with an emphasis in civil rights and immigration, to continue fighting against the struggles that immigrant communities face.
