Lorena Diaz is a Community Organizer at the ACLU of Maryland. In this role she supports broader organizational efforts. Born in Baltimore to two immigrant parents, Lorena spent her adolescence with her grandparents in their native country, El Salvador. This gave Lorena the tools to become completely bilingual in both English and Spanish and laid the foundation for who she is today. Lorena has a BA in Government and Politics, and minors in Portuguese and Latin American Studies. Following college, Lorena spent several years working with CASA where she developed her passion for community-based work. Before joining the ACLU team, Lorena worked for the House of Ruth Maryland, where she helped strengthen community engagement and outreach in Baltimore City and Baltimore County's immigrant communities.
