ABOUT MARU MORA VILLALPANDO

Maru Mora Villalpando is a community organizer and immigrant from Mexican. Born and raised in Mexico City, at a very young age Maru became involved in protest marches and labor strikes. Since arriving in the United States two decades ago, Maru has dedicated her life to working for racial justice and justice for immigrants.

She is a co-founder of La Resistencia, whose primary goal is to end all detentions and deportations and close the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, WA. Maru is also a founding member of MiJente, a national digital Latinx organization.

Maru has been candid about her experience as an undocumented immigrant in the United States for over two decades. Because of her work against Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency subjected her to deportation proceedings in 2017. This September, the same agency granted her prosecutorial discretion, and with this recent victory Maru continues the work to end all detentions and deportations in Washington state, where she currently lives.
