The Project

Legal services for victims of human trafficking and crime are not readily available in New Mexico. As a result, there is a great need for these services in New Mexico. This Fellowship helped provide those services to the community. During her time as a Crime Victims Justice Corps Fellow, Diana worked as an attorney with the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center to provide legal services to survivors of human trafficking. 

Diana grew up in an immigrant community in New Mexico and thus feels a deep commitment to serving the immigrant community, including victims of human trafficking and crime, in New Mexico. Diana is also culturally competent, bilingual, and able to view injustice through a critical lens. These skills help her provide competent legal services to her clients.

[Equal Justice Works gave me] the opportunity to pursue my interest in immigration law and provided me many opportunities for professional development by organizing yearly conferences where I could learn from my peers and from seasoned public interest attorneys who gave me a glimpse into what my career could look like long term.
