Reyna E. Villegas

Development Director

Reyna graduated with her Master's in Social Work in 2020 from the University of Utah. Reyna's desire to build power in her community motivated her to intern at Comunidades Unidas. She began as an intern in the Fall of 2016, where she learned about the essential rights of undocumented and DACA community members. Through her experiences and volunteering in her community, Reyna's life was impacted in a way that led her to be more aware of the needs of her community. She felt compelled and driven to get involved in a cause that can assist people such as her own, helping shape countless lives and creating social responses that can lead underrepresented communities down a new path of equal opportunities, growth, and social justice. Reyna has served her community in various distinctive roles, including advocating for undocumented families in Washington D.C., leading the efforts of the Know Your Rights program, connecting families with resources, providing educational information about Workers' Rights in the Workplace, leading the FEF program at CU, and most recently leading the fundraising efforts.


Fun fact: Reyna likes reading manga, hiking, and baking delicious desserts for her family.
