Emma Ashley-Roth

Emma Ashley-Roth received her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Sociology and Spanish from Clark University in 2010.

During and after college, Emma worked with labor unions that valued the intersectional nature of the struggle for workers' rights and immigrants’ rights in the US. In 2013, Emma moved to Mexico City, where she became involved with an extensive network of organizations that worked with migrants who were attempting to make their way to the USA and who were settling in Mexico City. In 2014, Emma lived and worked at Annunciation House, a migrants’ shelter in El Paso, Texas.

A San Francisco native, Emma has been immersed in immigrant communities here since she was a child. After her earlier experiences working with immigrant communities in other areas, Emma now enjoys advocating for the rights of immigrants back in her hometown.
