As an equal justice fellow with the Louisiana-based Resilience Force, Fernanda Herrera Spieler is battling climate disasters, racial injustice, and economic inequity. Resilience Force represents the growing number of immigrant workers who follow climate disasters around the country to rebuild devastated communities. Fernanda spends her time helping migrant workers navigate the difficult legal system. One such case she recalls is helping a client secure a protective order against his violent employer. Fernanda earned her bachelor’s degree in international law from Samford University and a juris doctorate from the Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She plans to work as a full-time immigration attorney when her fellowship ends.

If you know a successful Gadsden City alumnus who is thriving somewhere around the world, we would love to include them in the Our Titan Family is Going Places campaign.

They can upload a short video (less than two minutes) and a photo here. The video should be an introduction of themselves, a synopsis of what they do in their career, and the coolest work-related experience they’ve had so far.

Make sure the video is between :30 and 2 minutes. The photo should be of just them with a background that reflects what they are doing in their career. They should be sure to use their name (first and last) as the file name for the photo and the video.
Along with the photo and video, they’ll need to complete the short survey here.
