Rose is a Deputy Project Director at the ACLU’s LGBT & HIV Project. Her work focuses on advancing equality for LGBTQ people and people living with HIV through litigation, policy advocacy and communications.
Rose was part of the ACLU’s litigation team in Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the case in which a same-sex couple was refused a wedding cake because they are gay, and Windsor v. United States, which struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act in 2014. She has also worked to advance nondiscrimination legislation at the federal, state and local level, on legislative attacks on LGBTQ equality including efforts to use religion to discriminate, and on state and federal HIV policy issues.
Prior to joining the ACLU, Rose worked as a judicial law clerk to Judge Sonia Sotomayor on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and to Judge Janet Bond Arterton of the the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. Rose graduated from Yale University School of Law and Georgetown University.
