UC Davis Alumni, join the School of Law for a compelling presentation, "The Spectrum of Race for Social Justice," led by longtime activist and advocate for racial and social justice, Nicole Santamaria. As the Executive Director of El/La Para TransLatinas, a non-profit dedicated to serving trans, intersex, and gender-diverse Latinx immigrants in the Bay Area, Nicole brings a wealth of experience and insight to the forefront of the conversation on racial justice.

In this thought-provoking session, Nicole will delve into the multifaceted dimensions of the racial justice movement, exploring the diverse experiences within the Latinx immigrant community. Drawing on personal and professional anecdotes, historical context, and current events, Nicole will guide the audience through the intricacies of navigating race, identity, and intersectionality in a guided conversation with the audience.

Her work with the LGBTQI+ community began with art therapy and research in El Salvador for survivors of anti-LGBTQI+, domestic, and sexual violence. She co-founded Colectiva Alejandria SV, collaborating with NGOs, activists, and government entities in multiple countries to raise awareness around the realities of LGBTQI+ communities. As the Executive Director of El/La Para TransLatinas, Nicole uses a trauma-informed lens to develop El/La’s diverse programs, support staff growth, strengthen partnerships, ensure continued funding, and serve as spokesperson to the public.
