Greisa Martinez Rosas    

Deputy Executive Director of United We Dream

Greisa Martinez Rosas is the Deputy executive director of United We Dream—the largest immigrant youth-led network in the country with more than 400,000 members. In this capacity, Greisa serves a UWD strategist and implements UWD’s vision, as the organization continues to build power throughout the country.

Greisa began organizing in her hometown of Dallas, TX in 2006 to help young Latinos in Texas register to vote, and has since become a fearless defender of her undocumented community and advocate for the rights of women.

Originally from Hidalgo, Mexico, Greisa migrated to the U.S. with her parents at a young age and grew up in Texas. While studying Biology at Texas A&M University, she co-founded the Council for Minority Student Affairs (CMSA). CMSA is the first undocumented youth-led organization in the conservative university’s more than 100 year history.

Greisa has been featured as a leading voice in the progressive movement and has been featured on many of the top outlets like CNN, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, BBC, Telemundo, Univision among others.

Greisa is the living embodiment of the United We Dream spirit—transforming personal adversity into personal power and hope that has inspired thousands into action.
