Cindy Martinez

Lead Organizer
Cindy was born and raised in New York City and comes from a large mix-status Mexican family. As a student at Hunter CUNY she became involved with organizing for immigration rights and mobilizing immigrant communities. When deportations hit home she began fighting against deportations and mass incarceration. As the advocacy coordinator at Families for Freedom, she worked with immigrant prisoners and detainees, former incarcerated individuals, and individuals at risk of deportation to build campaigns against deportations, immigration enforcement, the criminalization of communities of color, collaboration between the criminal justice system and the immigration system, and ICE presence in NYC and nationally. Cindy has worked closely with Enlace in the past on the Prison Divest Campaign and participated in the Enlace Institute.
