Rebecca is an attorney and policy wonk whose interest in worker rights stems from her time working in NYC’s garment industry. Before joining GLJ-ILRF’s Forced Labor Program, she focused on garment worker rights with Justice in Fashion, and now sits on its Board of Directors. Prior to that, she served as the Legal and Policy Fellow at the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable, where she focused on mandatory human rights due diligence legislation.
Rebecca engaged in other human rights and employment-related legal work at a variety of organizations while at the University of Minnesota Law School, including the ACLU of Minnesota. In 2016, she was awarded the Human Rights Center Fellowship to work with Juvenile Justice Advocates International in Mexico, where she joined a case study on juvenile pretrial detention. A year later, she advocated for shortened detention limits before several UN committees and eventually published her findings in the Minnesota Journal of International Law. Rebecca strives to apply an intersectional lens in her work and life, and keeps an unreasonably long book list to satisfy that goal.
