Gabriella Sanchez-Stern

2010 Brandeis Undergraduate Segal Fellow

Gabriella Sanchez-Stern, Brandeis Class of 2012, majored in politics. For her Segal summer internship, Gabi worked at Demos in Washington, D.C., where her focus was researching the role of civic engagement in immigrant day workers’ centers across the country. One of the highlights of her time at Brandeis was when she spent a summer semester in Mississippi studying the local civil rights history and researching how segregation was institutionally maintained in the Mississippi towns of Natchez, Philadelphia, and Jackson. After graduating from Brandeis she spent seven months working as a field organizer for the Martin Heinrich for Senate campaign in New Mexico.

Gabi lives in Seattle and is the communications organizer for Washington Community Action Network, a statewide grassroots organization that works to achieve racial, social and economic justice. She plans to take the LSAT and apply to law school sometime in the next couple of years.
