Highlights: Nolberto's passion and deep commitment to human rights is rooted in familial and professional experiences. As an undergraduate Bonner Fellow at The Advocates for Human Rights he helped screen and support asylum-seekers and survivors of torture and met people who were persecuted abroad on account of their political affiliation, religion, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation by society or the government. Nolberto then continued his work at The Bronx Defenders where he helped represent immigrants in deportation proceedings and met people who were prosecuted domestically on account of their race, class, religion, and nationality by the government. During his time at The Bronx Defenders, Nolberto observed the way in which criminal "justice" and immigration policy destroy(ed) families and he also witnessed his brilliant colleagues who fought every day for the freedom of their clients. Nolberto looks forward to joining CHRI so that he can continue his work of creating a more just world where human rights are respected.
