MEGHANA RAVIKUMAR | ADVOCATE, IMMIGRATION PROGRAM

Meghana was raised by Indian immigrant parents in Santa Clara, CA. Being witness to the economic inequality in Silicon Valley imbued in her an interest in social justice from a young age. She went on to receive her B.A. in History with a focus on Colonialism and Imperialism from Scripps College in May 2017. During her time there, she explored how low-caste devadasi women made use of and navigated the colonial legal system in 19th century India. She also organized campus-wide celebrations of Hindu holidays, tutored and mentored immigrant youth, and fund-raised for scholarships for low-income students at Scripps. Meghana joined us in September 2017 as a paralegal for the Immigration program.
