Lauren Lluveras is the immigration and economic justice policy manager at the Texas Council on Family Violence, a nonprofit coalition dedicated to advocacy on behalf of survivors of domestic violence, and is currently pursuing her PhD in African & African Diaspora Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.

Previously, Lauren held a Juris Doctor Post-Doctoral fellowship at the Institute for Urban Policy Research and Analysis (2017-2019) where during the 2017 legislative session, she worked alongside the Texas Legislative Black Caucus to research and write bills that would benefit Black Texans. Her work as a community organizer has also included a role with the state’s office of minority health (once named the Center for the Elimination of Disproportionality and Disparities) where she worked alongside thirty-four Central Texas counties to bring those most impacted by health inequities to the table with their local legislators, nonprofit community, municipal and county institutions, and health and human services offices to help shape equitable health policies (2016-17). Most recently, she spent two years as the director of logistics at Six Square–Austin’s Black Historical District (2020-2022).

In 2013, Lauren earned her JD degree from St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio. In 2019, Lauren returned to graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin where she has since been awarded a Master of Arts in African & African Diaspora Studies from the College of Liberal Arts (2021) and she received her BA in English with a concentration on creative writing in 2010 at Texas A&M.
