Bios:

Tina Colón Williams double-majored in Political Science and Ethnicity Race & Migration at Yale University. After spending some time as a legal intern with Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services in New Haven, she received a J.D. from the University of Connecticut School of Law. As a law student, she interned with several public interest organizations, including Apostle Immigrant Services and Yale Law School’s Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization. She began her legal practice at Wiggin and Dana, LLP as an Associate in the Immigration & Nationality Law and Compliance Group, and she recently completed a term as a Law Clerk with the United States District Courts for the District of Connecticut.

In her free time, she is actively involved in the New Haven community as one of the pastors at the Elm City Vineyard Church. She also serves on the Board of Directors for the Connecticut Hispanic Bar Association and Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services. She is passionate about access to justice and wholeness for marginalized communities, and she is grateful to be joining Esperanza’s mission and work.

Angelica Idrovo Castillo is undocumented, unafraid, and unapologetic. She is an advocate and organizer for immigrants rights, education equity, and for communities of color. She is a Lead Organizer for CT Students for a Dream (C4D), a youth-led, statewide network fighting for the rights of undocumented youth and their families. In this role, Angelica coordinates youth-led programming and empowers young people to gain skills to become leaders in their schools and across the state. Anghy was born in Cuenca, Ecuador and moved to Connecticut in 2008. She is a student at the University of Connecticut.
