Prior to transforming Immigrant ARC into an independent non-profit organization, Ms. Mackler was the Director of Immigration Legal Policy at the New York Immigration Coalition. In that role, she led advocacy campaigns to improve laws and policies for the benefit of immigrants across New York State. She is a graduate of New York Law School and Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service.
