Liz Magallanes

Liz Magallanes is an advocate in the immigrant community of Dallas-Fort Worth to bring justice through empowerment, and civic engagement in Latino and allied communities. She has done this in different capacities- as an organizer, legal assistant, and actor, by means of grassroots organizing, legal services, and art. She has also worked intersectionally with local organizations, and nationally with United We Dream, to connect the issues impacting communities of color and other marginalized communities to effect social change. As a student of Drama she also strives to incorporate these voices in the Arts. She recently did this through her appearance in Cara Mía Theatre’s production of Deferred Action, which toured Texas, and was presented at Encuentro De Las Americas 2017, an international theatre festival that brings companies from across the Americas together in Los Angeles. She is a Public Voices Fellow through the OpEd Project.
