The Project

Taylor seeks 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 will work 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 intersects and overlaps with a too often overlooked population. Taylor considers it a privilege to lead this effort to address the multifaceted issue of elder abuse in the Antelope Valley.

Fellowship Plans

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