Jasmin Chavez

LULAC Deputy Director for Virginia

Jasmin Chavez

Jasmin is a young professional who works in immigration law and policy spaces. She has been advocating for the rights of her immigrant community since she was 14 years old. Growing up, she organized town halls and clothing and food drives, to ensure that her community members were not only informed about their rights but had enough to eat and clothes to wear.

Jasmin’s passion for serving the community led her to create a LULAC council at her undergraduate institution. Jasmin is the immediate past President and Founder of the McDaniel College LULAC Council. In 2018, she was named the Young Adult Woman of the Year at the LULAC National Convention in Phoenix, Arizona. She is now serving as the Virginia LULAC State Director. Jasmin is also the Director of Engagement for the CHCI-DC Alumni Association Chapter.

In addition, Jasmin is an alumnus of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, the White House Initiative on Education Excellence for Hispanics Internship program, the Smithsonian Latino Center’s Young Ambassadors Program, the UCLA Dream Summer Fellowship, the Donald J. Weidner Summer for Undergraduates Program and the HACU Corporate Internship Program. In 2014, Jasmin was the featured speaker for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s 37th Annual Awards gala.

Jasmin hopes to run for office in five years
