Guisela Marroquín

Guisela Marroquin profile picture

Guisela is an immigrant from Guatemala. From a young age, she became a natural advocate as a result of the adversities she and her family encountered. Guisela’s Latina identity instilled in her a strong sense of community and taught her about the resilient spirit of people often living at the margins of society.

Guisela pursued social justice through education—leading her to community organizing as a means of empowerment and transformative change. With a deeper understanding of systems and policy, Guisela made the connection between obstacles she has faced and the issues that affect other marginalized groups.

Guisela recently served as the regional organizer for the Long Island and Lower Hudson Valley chapters of the New York Civil Liberties Union and focused on statewide campaigns relating to educational justice, police reform and accountability, and immigrant rights, including the Justice for Farmworkers Campaign. In this role, she worked to dismantle systems of oppression by connecting public policy with grassroots advocacy. She is the former director of training at the Advocacy Institute.

Guisela holds a bachelor’s degree in behavioral science and a master’s degree in organizing, planning & development from the Hunter College Silberman School of Social Work. She currently lives in Mamaroneck, NY.
