Nicole Irigoyen



I am local to the Monterey/Salinas area and a graduate of CSUMB. Unwaveringly committed to equity for marginalized populations, I am described by my colleagues as equal parts fierce and compassionate.

Areas of interest

I am interested in upholding and promoting human rights, including gender justice, racial justice, and ending the school-to-prison pipeline.

Project description

My project is titled Foster Youth Are Not Future Prisoners: Ending the Foster-to-Prison Pipeline Through Radical Love and Care. I aim to research and implement strategies that restore the full personhood and dignity of those in the foster system and juvenile justice system.
