Lizette Nuno graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in legal studies and ethnic studies. As an undergraduate, she interned at La Familia Counseling Services, UnCommon Law, and Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, where she supported incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people. She also tutored students at San Quentin State Prison and designed a research study examining the financial impacts of having a family member imprisoned. Her passion to advocate for marginalized communities and those who have been excluded from society stems from her experience of having a loved one behind bars. In her free time, Lizette enjoys reading, watching Netflix, and hanging out with friends.
