2013 Equal Justice Works Fellow Robin Richardson is currently at the Urban Justice Center’s Sex Workers Project. Sponsored by the Friends & Family of Philip M. Stern, Robin identifies, represents, and advocates for indigent victims of sex trafficking in New York City. We recently caught up with Robin to learn more about her work.
What type of work have you done throughout your Equal Justice Works Fellowship?
My Fellowship is aimed at eliminating barriers to employment for people who have engaged in the sex industry. For victims of trafficking in New York, that means vacating their criminal convictions, helping them obtain legal status, and fighting illegal criminal conviction-based employment discrimination. I offer my New York clients all of these services.
