Cedar is an Immigrant Justice Corps Fellow in the Unaccompanied Children Program. She works with the Refugee & Immigrant Program to represent children and adolescents in a variety of immigration matters including asylum, removal proceedings, and special immigrant juvenile status.

Cedar recently graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School, where she concentrated in Immigration Law and served as a certified student attorney in the Detainee Rights Clinic. She also was an Articles Editor with the Minnesota Journal of Law & Inequality. During her last two years of law school, Cedar clerked with a local immigration firm, assisting attorneys with BIA appeals, asylum & withholding of removal applications, and waivers of inadmissibility.

Before attending Law School, Cedar graduated cum laude from Hamilton College, where she spent a term studying at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú in Lima. Returning to Minnesota after graduation, Cedar worked with youth-focused nonprofit organizations in the Twin Cities metro area for three years. She interned with The Advocates for Human Rights' Refugee & Immigrant Program in the summer of 2019 and is excited to return.
