Prior to joining The Bail Project, Julio served as a community organizer in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area for the past 9 years. Growing up undocumented in the anti-immigrant state of Arizona, Julio experienced first hand the barriers the immigration system imposes on families. He led the Arizona Dream Act Coalition as the Executive Director and helped obtain drivers licenses for DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program] recipients and fought for in-state university tuition.
