Cristal’s commitment to upholding immigrant rights stems from years of witnessing the challenges her undocumented parents faced. While attending City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law, Cristal interned at The Legal Aid Society, UnLocal, and Brooklyn Defender Services and was a student attorney in the Immigrant & Non-Citizen Rights Clinic. As an IJC Fellow at the Safe Passage Project, she will provide legal representation to undocumented immigrant children who face deportation.
