Nu Sosori nI en Doya Donzia; my Eastern Shoshone name is Mountain Flower. I have worked in the arena of domestic violence and sexual assault for approximately a half-century. I am very excited and honored to be a team member of an exceptional organization that provides indispensable services, education and support to a critical population, domestic violence and sexual assault victims and survivors, in Wyoming and the Wind River Reservation. I am looking forward to working with a unique group of colleagues with diverse and unique experiences to increase and expand my ‘vision’.

Antonio Serrano is the Advocacy Director for the ACLU of Wyoming, and builds ACLU’s public education and advocacy programs through coalition-building, leadership development, communication, and lobbying. He ensures that supporters of the ACLU of Wyoming have the tools, information, and opportunities to be effective advocates on issues like immigration and criminal justice reform.
Antonio joined the ACLU of Wyoming in 2018 as an organizer. In this role, Antonio played a large role in campaigns like WyoSayNo, a coalition that fought and successfully blocked two private prison companies from building an immigration detention center in Uinta County, and the Wyoming Rapid Response Network, a team that documents actions by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in the state.
Prior to joining the ACLU of Wyoming, Antonio founded Juntos, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for immigrants. Thanks to his work, Juntos has been able to provide “Know Your Rights” handbooks and legal documents to hundreds of immigrant families around Wyoming.
Antonio has the gente and Wyoming in his heart and has promised to spend his life working to make sure his state lives up to the name of the Equality State.
