Gabriela Hernandez

New Mexico Dream Team
Community Organizer
Gabriela Hernandez is a community organizer with New Mexico Dream Team and an artist. She was born in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico where she lived until the age of seven; short after her mother, sisters, and herself migrated to the United States in search of a better future away from family abuse. As an undocumented immigrant herself, Hernández understood the immense struggles faced by the immigrant community and decided that she would fight alongside other youth for her right to be treated with dignity and respect. Connecting with her queer identity, Hernández also sought to highlight and connect the voices of LGBTQ youth through her social activism.
