Maxie Bee she / her / hers
Maxie has been with NCLR as an intern since January 2019 and was hired in October of the same year as a full time legal assistant. Her work at NCLR revolves around assisting the legal team with whatever work needs to be done, such as by maintaining the organization’s legal calendar and docket, translating documents and correspondence, conducting legal research, and processing and assisting callers via NCLR’s legal helpline. Maxie also assists NCLR’s Immigration and Asylum Project with submitting asylum applications, organizing case files, and greeting and assisting clients.
She graduated in 2016 from San Francisco State University with a bachelor’s degree in International relations and an academic certification from La Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in Contemporary Latin-American History. The year before she graduated, Maxie studied abroad in Santiago, Chile where she strengthened her Spanish and recognized and focused her passion in fighting injustice and inequality.
Maxie looks forward to continuing to deepen her understanding of the myriad intersectional struggles facing marginalized communities, both local and otherwise, and to continue the fight against systemic oppression however she can.
