The Project

Judy provided immigrant trafficking victims in New York City with increased access to no-cost, culturally competent, language-accessible legal services, increased immigrant communities’ awareness of trafficking and legal rights and services available to individuals who have experienced trafficking, and increased the professional community’s capacity to effectively identify and respond to trafficking. Judy provided culturally competent, trauma-informed legal services to immigrant victims of trafficking, conducted outreach to immigrant communities, and provided training to communities, pro bono attorneys, and other professional stakeholders. 

Judy had previously worked in victim-centered, trauma-focused legal services for four years as an immigration attorney, legal fellow and intern, and law student. As a Chinese immigrant who speaks Mandarin, she is able to provide culturally and linguistically competent counsel and assistance to many trafficking victims in New York City who are monolingual Mandarin speakers. Finally, she has a genuine passion for helping crime victims heal from their past experiences and build a better future for themselves and their families.
