As an Immigrants’ Rights Paralegal on the Keeping Communities Together Project at Centro Legal, Nallely prepares and files a variety of immigration applications for adults seeking deportation and affirmative relief before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the San Francisco Immigration Court.
Prior to joining Centro, Nallely was a Willie Brown Fellow at the San Francisco Human Rights Commission (HRC) during her time at San Francisco State University. There, she developed a survey and generated data for the HRC to better assess the needs of the undocumented “Dreamer” population. Nallely also analyzed how the HRC offers practices to the community; in particular, to youth and transitional age youth.
Nallely’s passion for immigrants’ rights stems from her own life experience as an undocumented DACA recipient. She appreciates the value of available legal services and resources to immigrant communities and is proud to be a part of Centro Legal and its mission.
For fun, Nallely enjoys binge-watching comedy shows with her husband and two cats, going out in nature, and trips to Disneyland.
