2020 KEYNOTE SPEAKER CHRISTINA FIALHO Christina Fialho is the Co-Founder/Executive Director of Freedom for Immigrants (formerly CIVIC), a national nonprofit devoted to abolishing immigration detention. As an attorney, she has spent over 15 years advocating for immigrants. She comes from three generations of immigrants. While in law school, Christina started the first immigration detention visitation program in California with her co-founder, Christina Mansfield. Since then, she has worked with her team at Freedom for Immigrants to mobilize a network of watchdog community members that visit weekly at approximately 70 immigration detention facilities, while creating an alternative model to detention that welcomes immigrants. Christina also has drafted and passed several laws. In 2017, she helped draft, and Freedom for Immigrants co-sponsored, the first statewide bill in the country to put a moratorium on immigration detention expansion, the Dignity Not Detention Act in California. She also helped introduce and pass AB 103 to give California’s Attorney General $10 million to monitor immigration detention facilities (2017) and AB 32 to abolish private prisons in California (2019). In addition, Christina and her team drafted the Detention Oversight Not Expansion (DONE) Act in Congress to put a federal moratorium on detention expansion and fund community-based alternatives. Christina also drafted a House budget amendment introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal that was approved in 2019 to prevent the diversion of funds from other government agencies to ICE for immigration enforcement. Christina is a leading expert on immigration detention and appears frequently on national television and radio programs. She has been awarded the 2020 John F. Kennedy New Frontier Award and the 2018 James Irvine Leadership Award among other recognitions. She was appointed to the California Bar Association’s first Civil Justice Strategies Task Force. In 2017, she was featured in Grammywinning artist Miguel’s music video “Now” about immigration, and in 2019, her organization was featured in Season 7 of Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black.
