Belinda Hernandez (they/she) is a Ñuu Savi immigrant from the Mixteca region of Oaxaca, Mexico. They immigrated to the U.S. with their family at one year old and grew up in Ventura County, California. Belinda completed their bachelor’s degree in legal studies at University of California, Berkeley. Their experiences working with immigrant-led organizations helped them recognize the lack of commitment to indigenous people and indigenous sovereignty within the movement. For this reason, Belinda aspires to become a trauma-informed immigration attorney to provide low-cost/free immigration legal services to indigenous migrants.
