The Project

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

Judy is excited and prepared for this Fellowship because she has worked in victim-centered, trauma-focused legal services for the past 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.
