Aidee Pascual (she/her) is the Administrative Assistant with the New Jersey Alliance for Immigrant Justice (NJAIJ) where she serves as first point of contact for members of the public to engage with our work. Daughter of immigrant parents from Mexico, she was born and raised in New Jersey. Pascual graduated from New Jersey City University with a B.A in Media Arts. She is thoroughly impassioned with the work led by coalition members at NJAIJ and supports the critical infrastructure the coalition needs for our work ahead.
  • Growing up with an immigrant family is the driving force of everything I do today. I have seen the struggles they have faced as well as how hard they have worked to give me everything they possibly could. It’s motivating to know that above all, NJAIJ fights for families like mine.

  • My favorite memory at NJAIJ has to be the entirety of Advocacy Academy. We had been planning for it so much that actually being in it was a bit surreal. It was really fun to connect with everyone, but also very necessary to have the discussions and panels we did. I’m still so proud of all of us and I can’t wait for the next one.

  • One of my favorite movies of all time is Bong Joon-ho's Parasite (2019). It’s a drama, horror/thriller, and comedy (yes all of those) about social inequality and wealth disparity, what's not to love?!
