PROMOTING THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF UNDOCUMENTED MIGRANTS
PICUM (Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants) promotes respect for the basic social rights of undocumented migrants, such as the right to health care, the right to shelter, the right to education and training, the right to minimum subsistence, the right to family life, the right to moral and physical integrity, the right to legal aid, and the right to fair labor conditions.

Michele has worked with resettled refugees in Chicago and with migrants in Brazil. She holds a Bachelors degree in French and Justice and Peace Studies from the University of St. Thomas and a Master in Applied Sciences (Housing and Development Program) for the Université Catholique de Louvain.
