Voting Rights Project, ACLU
Leading up to the 2012 general election, Julie was a staff attorney with the ACLU of Florida. She was counsel in several voting rights cases, including litigation preventing reductions to early voting, a successful constitutional challenge to restrictions on voter registration drives, a challenge to Florida’s purge of the state voter rolls, and a challenge to the non-uniformity of elections laws among Florida counties. She also wrote and testified on the disparate impact of felon disfranchisement and the intersection of over-criminalization and voting rights.
Before joining the ACLU, Julie focused on refugee protection issues, working first with the International Rescue Committee on the Thailand-Myanmar border, then with Lawyers for Human Rights in South Africa. Prior to law school, Julie served as Policy & Advocacy Associate with the New York Civil Liberties Union.
Julie is a graduate of Columbia University and Fordham University School of Law. She is admitted to practice in New York and Florida, as well as D.C. District Courts.
