YPAIJ Executive Committee:


"I joined, and am proud to serve on, the Executive Committee of the YPAIJ because I love the work Americans for Immigrant Justice does in our community and I wanted to be part of it.  Our group is bringing together young professionals from a variety of industries and backgrounds, and all of us are dedicated to furthering the mission of Americans for Immigrant Justice."

Ian Ross, Greenberg Traurig LLP, Co-Chair


 Amanda Israel, Burger King Foundation, Co-Chair



"This is the land of opportunity, and it is hard for me to see The American Dream moving further away from hard working immigrants.  Getting involved will give me the opportunity to help that dream come true."

Esther Besonias, Sabadell Bank



Jessica Santis-Pompa, Alvarez & Marsal Taxand, LLC
