The Project

Taylor’s project sought to provide justice for all by giving free legal access to those who need it most. As the Equal Justice Works Elder Justice Program Fellow at Bet Tzedek, Taylor worked to empower senior citizens through community building, direct representation, and educational events.

Taylor went to law school to become a more effective advocate for those who need a voice. In this Fellowship, her passion for advocacy and empowerment intersected and overlapped with a too often overlooked population.

Fellowship Overview

Due to lack of service availability and access, Antelope Valley, a rural area of Los Angeles County, was be the focal point of this Fellowship. Taylor utilized innovative methods to reach this previously underserved population in an effort to establish a clinic and community cohesion. This effort provided access to services as well as a comprehensive network of resources.
