National Policy and Advocacy Director, UndocuBlack Network


Patrice Lawrence is the National Policy and Advocacy Director for the UndocuBlack Network, where she leads the network’s advocacy efforts on immigrants’ rights and racial justice. She is committed to social, racial, gender and immigration justice and works with the goal of transforming the realities of Black undocumented people. It is time that those directly impacted lead the charge on what they need to thrive. There is no power like people power, and the might of the UndocuBlack Network is a testament to that. Originally from Jamaica, Patrice is a graduate of Hollins University in Roanoke, VA and firmly believes that the sum of one’s experiences makes them whole regardless of their immigration status.
