The Project

My project includes family law and criminal law remedies for women trafficked into prostitution by their boyfriends and husbands, as well as immigration representation through the T and U visas. I will work with former victims to develop a collective voice to contribute to policy efforts around trafficking. Finally, by litigating for victims of trafficking who remain excluded from the U.S. for their acts of prostitution, I will ask the courts to question the hard line between "bad" sex workers and "good" trafficking victims.
