Guadalupe Chavez is the outreach and events assistant for the Center for Migration Studies. Ms. Chavez received her master’s degree from The New School for Social Research in politics with a focus on US-Mexico migration politics. In 2018, Ms. Chavez was awarded the Fulbright Garcia-Robles research fellowship to conduct research in Mexico. During her time in Mexico, her research explored how the Mexican government has responded to the rise of voluntary and involuntary returns to Mexico from the United States and what type of political and social demands arise post-deportation. Her academic and non-academic work seeks to bring into dialogue policymakers, academics, and communities to design, shape, and implement policies and global norms rooted in solidarity and political innovation. Furthermore, she has experience working in the nonprofit sector, in politics at the state and federal level, and collaborating with academics.
