Today, D’Santos has two associate degrees from Canada College in Redwood City, in interior design and art, and is a board member at Oasis Legal Services. She also is a program director at San Francisco’s El/La Para TransLatinas, an organization offering resources for trans Latina women.
This was all made possible by Oasis Legal Services, D’Santos said. The Oakland-based nonprofit was founded by four women in May 2017. It has helped over 700 LGBT immigrants obtain asylum in the United States with a 99 percent success rate.
