My name is Gabe Sanders, and I am a senior pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Certificate in Chican@/Latin@ Studies. I was raised in Long Beach, California, and I have developed a keen interest in issues of social, environmental, and criminal justice. After completing my undergraduate education, I will attend law school, where I hope to obtain the skills needed for a career centered on advocacy and litigation.
