Ms. Marisol Estrada is a native of Mexico, but grew up in Savannah, Georgia for most of her life. She attended grade school in the Savannah Public School System and is a graduate of Armstrong State University. Marisol received her B.A. in Political Science and B.A. in Spanish with magna cum laude honors in 2016. During her time in college, she was heavily involved in student organizations and in community organizing efforts, including the Student Government Association, Feminists United, and the Savannah Undocumented Youth Alliance. Marisol served as a legislative aide for Representative Brenda Lopez during the 2017 legislative session, and, now, serves as Deputy Chief of Staff. While working with the Democratic Party of Georgia as a Minority Outreach Field Organizer, Marisol played a significant role in the 2017 Special Election in the 6th Congressional District, which pitted Jon Ossoff against Karen Handel. In 2018, Marisol began serving as a member of the American Mexican Association USA (“AMA-USA”), whose mission is to counter negative discourse around the Mexican community in the United States. She also serves on the Policy Action Committee for the Deep Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to address the detrimental effects of poverty on literacy rates in Savannah.
Marisol currently works as a legal assistant for one of the top immigration law firms in the nation, Kuck Baxter Immigration, LLC. Recognizing the importance of civic engagement within historically underrepresented and marginalized groups, she currently volunteers with various community non-profits in the Atlanta area. Marisol has been invited to speak on various panels to address issues that immigrant youth face in our country, and has been interviewed by local, state, and national media outlets, both in English and Spanish. In the near future, Marisol plans to attend law school and continue working on progressive policies at the state and federal levels.
