Alejandra Sanchez

Position: Immigration Law Fellow


Alejandra immigrated to the U.S. from Jalisco, Mexico at the age of one. She and her family settled in the Bay Area, where she has been living ever since. She graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in biology and Latina/Latino studies. She is currently working for the California State Legislature and plans to attend law school to become an immigration attorney.

After being undocumented for over 20 years, Alejandra was able to adjust her status in 2016. She continues to have a strong connection to the immigrant community and a true passion to work on immigration policies.

Alejandra’s 18-month-old son brings her the most joy. She also finds joy in eating delicious meals, exploring new places, and spending quality time with her family. Through the Immigration Law Fellowship, she looks forward to learning about immigration law and working collectively with the immigrant community to create positive change.
