Gabriel Daniel Solis started as Research Associate with the Justice Program at the Brennan Center in July 2012.

He has most recently worked on analyzing social science data and legal arguments for the Justice Program’s Supreme Court amicus brief in Fisher v. Texas.
Prior to joining the Brennan Center, Gabriel coordinated the Rule of Law Oral History Project at Columbia University, working to end harsh international and domestic policies associated with the post-9/11 “war on terror.” Gabriel was also Coordinator at Refugio Center for Community Organizing and Associate Director at Texas After Violence Project, a human rights organization studying the effects of state violence on individuals and communities.
Gabriel holds a B.A. (2008) in Philosophy and M.A. (2011) in Mexican American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin, where his award-winning thesis research was on the history of the racialization and criminalization of undocumented Latino immigrants living and working in the United States.
