Michelle is a bay area raised Queer Mexipina whose roots in prison abolition work led them to Portland, Oregon to broaden their studies in political science while organizing QTPOC students access to higher education and also helping to form the Portland chapter of Critical Resistance. Through their time at the Associated Students of Portland Community College Student Government, volunteering with No More Deaths•No Mas Muertes Desert Aid Program, and as a member of Decolonize PDX they’ve sharpened their skills in community organizing and direct humanitarian aid. Having now returned to the bay area to be closer to their family and expand their education in legal studies through the paralegal program at SF City College, they are eager to join the Transgender Law Center as the new Legal Assistant.
