“I cannot vote, but by encouraging millions of others, we were able to elect candidates amongst different levels of government who would deliver on comprehensive reform to provide migrants with rights,” Anaya-Sandoval said.

This past summer, Anaya-Sandoval was selected as a Dream Summer Fellow, an annual national fellowship of the UCLA Labor Center’s Dream Resource Center. As part of the fellowship, she worked with the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration, a nonprofit focused on reform by providing resources to a network of university leaders and higher education institutions. Marymount is a proud partner of the organization, represented by University President Irma Becerra.
