Jacqueline Galeno-Escobedo is currently a third year student at Santa Clara University School of Law. She is pursuing a career in Intellectual Property and is passionate about her work as an advocate for the undocumented immigrant community. She brings a diverse experience and perspective to the NHMC Policy team. We are excited to see how her advocacy efforts help increase representation of Latinxs across all platforms. Outside of school and work, she enjoys photography, hiking and spending time with her family and friends.
20 years from now, what would a biographer write about your contribution to the Latino community?
They would write that I fought hard for immigrants’ rights. They would also mention how I joined the fight to get more Latinxs represented on and off the screen.
What food reminds you of home?
My mom’s chile rojo cheese enchiladas. My mouth is watering just thinking about them!
What has been your favorite class in law school so far?
Constitutional Law II- Individual rights. It’s definitely one of the “spicier” areas of law.
Working closely with the National Hispanic Media Coalition’s (NHMC) policy staff, at least one student each semester will work as a fellow fighting for better media representation for Latinos. Fellows are guided through legal and policy research, analysis, writing and public speaking. They build skills while enhancing NHMC’s advocacy with members of Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and other agencies. NHMC’s Policy Fellowship Program is sponsored by Univision Communications, Inc.
