Imogene Mankin

Imogene’s interest in immigration is rooted in her mother’s immigration to the U.S from Italy. She began her career as a receptionist at a private immigration firm and then as a legal assistant at the Immigration Center for Women and Children. During law school, she trained as an immigrant advocate through internships at the East Bay Community Law Center, The Bronx Defenders, and the National Immigration Law Center, and through volunteer work and leadership with the Berkeley Immigration Group Detention Project. As an IJC fellow, Imogene works at The Bronx Defenders, focusing on detained clients and immigration issues.
