Krystina François


Krystina François is a social justice advocate and policy strategist engaging stakeholders across multiple sectors to advocate for the needs of marginalized communities. As Executive Director of the Office of New Americans of Miami-Dade, she spearheads a countywide initiative to bring legal and financial resources for immigrants out of offices and into the community. François is a first-generation Haitian-American driven by the desire to create more opportunity for immigrants and marginalized communities to have a voice. Her devotion to human rights and social justice began at a young age while attending The United Nations International School in New York City. As a freshman in high school, she moved to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, where antigovernment protests and political instability gave her valuable perspective on the conditions that force many immigrants to seek refuge in the US.
