The Project

Cecilia’s (she/her/hers) project will focus on providing trauma-informed direct representation to survivors of sexual harm in Cook County, Illinois. The Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation supports victims and survivors of sexual assault, stalking, and trafficking in civil matters; it also upholds victims and survivors’ rights by advocating for survivors in the criminal justice system.

Fellowship Plans

At the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation, Cecilia will work in partnership with survivors to ensure they are supported in ways they want and need through the civil and criminal processes that result. She will work to uphold the safety of victims by obtaining protective orders, pursuing civil remedies, and facilitating school and workplace support of victims through Title IX. Additionally, Cecilia will help survivors understand and navigate the criminal justice system by joining them at law enforcement interviews and advocating for their rights as in criminal proceedings.

I am passionate about ending gender-based violence, and I am honored to be able to have the opportunity to serve and support women and survivors of sexual exploitation.
