Lydiette Diaz
Special Projects Manager and Executive Assistant

Lydiette works in collaboration across departments to ensure the delivery of programming and events in addition to providing administrative support to the president and general counsel. Lydiette is instrumental in serving as the liaison between LatinoJustice and the multitude of constituencies the organization serves.

A native of Puerto Rico, Lydiette has always had a profound interest in the Latino community and experience within and beyond the borders of the United States. She received her B.A. from Rutgers University and her M.A. from the John C. Whitehead School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University.
 
Lydiette has worked at a private law firm as a paralegal in their toxic tort division; at a higher education institution in their special programs division; and interned at a nonprofit organization advocating for refugees and asylees. These experiences led her to LatinoJustice PRLDEF where she hopes to further the mission of protecting the rights of all Latinos.
