Julie is a senior staff attorney with the ACLU Voting Rights Project. Since 2013, she has litigated voting rights matters across the country, including challenges to felony disenfranchisement in Florida and Iowa; discriminatory voter suppression laws in North Carolina; at-large school board elections in Ferguson, Missouri; dual voter registration systems in Kansas; and election officials’ rejection of absentee ballots based on voters’ signatures in California and New Hampshire. Leading up to the 2012 general election, Julie was a staff attorney with the ACLU of Florida and counsel in several voting rights cases.
She has written and testified on the detrimental effect of criminal disfranchisement laws and the intersection of over-criminalization, prison gerrymandering, and voting rights dilution.
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.
Julie is a graduate of Columbia University and Fordham University School of Law. She is admitted to practice in New York and Florida.
