Amy Czulada is a current International Studies master’s student at the University of Denver, focusing on the intersection of migration and human rights.
She is originally from Philadelphia, PA, where her family, including her beloved niece and two nephews, still resides. She lived and worked at the US/Mexico border for two years, organizing border immersion delegations, teaching English and Citizenship classes, and doing immigration casework for survivors of violent crimes.
She became involved on the project in Fall 2015 by interpreting for law students, and has continued with it by conducting qualitative interviews and more quantitative surveys. She currently coordinates the Wage Theft Direct Action Team at Centro Humanitario, which negotiates with and pressures employers to pay their workers when they have failed to do so, and is involved with the Sanctuary movement in Denver. After graduation, she hopes to continue working with immigrant and refugee communities in Denver.
