Gabriela Roque is dedicated to empowering marginalized communities for a more just and sustainable society. She is the proud daughter of Guatemalan immigrants and a first-generation college graduate, earning a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Goucher College, where her passion for grassroots activism was ignited. 

After serving immigrant communities as an AmeriCorps volunteer, tutoring incarcerated students through Goucher’s prison education program and delving into labor organizing with Unite Here, Gabriela deepened her activism with CASA, a leading organization in immigration advocacy.

Driven by her commitment to environmental justice, Gabriela became CASA’s inaugural Climate Training Manager and pioneered CASA’s Climate Justice Fellowship Program, developing a popular education curriculum on the intersectionality between climate and social justice issues. Gabriela is excited to elevate this work at NPNA and empower frontline immigrant communities to advocate for climate justice and bridge the gap between migrant justice and environmental advocacy.
