Christina Luo, Board Member

Currently, Christina divides her time between two amazing jobs in Harrisburg. She is an immigration attorney with Catholic Charities, where asylum law is her primary area of specialty, and she is the Director of Development for the wonderful Londonderry School. Christina teaches 4th and 7th through 8th grade American history at Londonderry, too — to the delight of her amazing boys, who (of course) go to school there. Christina’s undergraduate and graduate degrees are in history and political science, with concentrations in Anglo-Saxon England and Russia/Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Her husband and his family immigrated to the United States from China following the Tiananmen Square incident in 1989. In her spare time, she enjoys serving on the vestry of and teaching Godly Play at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Medieval cooking, genealogy, yoga, and hiking with her family and friends. Since interning at the United Nations, if not before, Christina has been an advocate for the rights of women and children — especially those who are immigrants or refugees — and has spent considerable time studying the effects of immigration on women throughout history. She hopes to be able to use her background in law, history, and development to support the mission and growth of PAIRWN in order to uplift immigrant women and children throughout Pennsylvania and share their powerful stories of hope with our community and beyond.
