Jonathan Goldman is the Executive Director of the Student Clinic for Immigrant Justice (SCIJ). Born in Denmark and raised in the US, Jonathan's outlook on immigration has been shaped by this foundational part of his identity. He previously co-founded The Right to Immigration Institute (TRII) and was one of the youngest elected members of the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee. Jonathan Goldman is committed to creating a better world through collaborative approaches, community engagement, and innovative solutions.
As a member of the Legal Empowerment Network, Jonathan is interested in learning from others and figuring out ways he can support and collaborate with other innovative legal initiatives. 

At TRII, Jonathan co-led the nonprofit which operates the first-in-the-nation program at Brandeis University that trains undergraduate students in immigration law and mobilizes them to provide immigration legal services. Under his leadership, they served 120+ immigrants, trained 70+ students, accredited 7 students with the Department of Justice, and proved the feasibility of engaging undergraduates in the fight for immigrant justice. He received multiple recognitions including the Davis Projects for Peace prize and the Karpf Hahn Peace Award, and TRII received the Interdisciplinary Legal Studies Teaching Award from the Consortium for Undergraduate Law & Justice Programs.

Jonathan also has over 5 years of experience in community and advocacy organizing with multiple campaigns across Massachusetts on the local, state, and federal levels. Jonathan has raised $100,000s through his work at SCIJ, TRII, Northampton Arts Council, and political campaigns. Through his experiences as a multilingual, dual-citizen, young adult fighting to create a better tomorrow, Jonathan draws on his background to engage people in making a difference.
