Abigael Monahan Negron
2022 Justice Fellows
Center for Safety and Change
Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University
Abigael has been an advocate for immigration reform, specifically DACA, since she was 15. As a high school senior, she organized a rally in support of DACA and made it her goal to become an immigration attorney. In law school, Abigael first worked for LatinoJustice PRLDEF, where she expanded her knowledge to include civil rights law. During her 2L year, she worked with MakeTheRoadNY on their DACA project and for the Southern Poverty Law Center on their Southeast Immigration Freedom Initiative. During her 3L year, she worked as a student attorney at the John Jay Legal Services Immigration Justice Clinic. As a Justice Fellow, Abigael is excited to continue learning- especially to learn in a courtroom and argue on the record- while working at the Center for Safety and Change.
