Layssa Zamora, of Mexican and Cuban heritage, joined the ACLU as Legal Program Associate to oversee the process by which the ACLU of Florida reviews and screens requests for assistance on potential civil liberties litigation. A long-standing respect for multi-culturalism, civil liberties, public awareness and environmental protection led her to seek out a position with an organization such as the ACLU.

She aspires to continue her studies in the future with the ultimate goal of receiving her Masters and PhD in Anthropology.
