immigrant rights at the state Capitol, working with legislators on both sides
of the aisle to push for civil rights for immigrants and people of color. As
policy director for a nonprofit legal and advocacy center, Aisha monitors
local, state, and federal policies that affect immigrants and works to fight
for their rights. Furthermore Aisha moved to Gwinnett County at the age of 6
from south Florida. Since then she has lived in the Collin Hills area, Suwanee
and now Duluth. Aisha is the middle of five children.
