About our partner

Who is CARECEN? Since its founding in 1983, when thousands of Central Americans fled the brutality of civil war, CARECEN has been working to change an unjust immigration system, win legal status for immigrants, and foster community activism on issues such as education reform, workers’ and immigrants’ rights, economic justice and community strengthening. CARECEN, is the largest Central American immigrant rights organization in the country that works hard to empower Central Americans and all immigrants by defending human and civil rights, working for social and economic justice, and promoting cultural diversity. They envision Los Angeles becoming a place where Central Americans and all other communities live in peace and dignity, enjoying economic well-being, social justice, and political empowerment.

About Stephanie:

As the daughter of immigrants, Stephanie’s passion for immigration law began at an early age. Stephanie’s zeal continued to grow while working in a disability rights firm, where she observed countless people unable to effectively fight for their rights, especially those that did not have status in the U.S. She had the fortune of working at Western State College of Law’s Immigration Clinic as a certified law clerk, where Stephanie she was able to utilize a client-centered approach to legal counseling for individuals experiencing severe trauma. She successfully represented an asylum seeker before the immigration court and was part of a team of students representing a client before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. She also worked as the Deportation Defense Field Coordinator for Orange County Justice Fund, where she served as a point of contact for detained individuals facing deportation. She graduated cum laude and went on to pass the bar exam and join CARECEN as a staff attorney. Outside of the office, Stephanie enjoys hikes with friends and family, devouring pizza, and watching reruns of The Office.
