Mitra Ebadolahi (@MitraEbadolahi) has been with the ACLU since 2011. As a Border Litigation Project Staff Attorney, she focuses on identifying, documenting, and litigating human and civil rights violations along the U.S.-Mexico border. Her litigation thus lies at the intersection of immigrants’ rights, racial justice, and police practices. Previously, she was the inaugural Nadine Strossen Fellow at the ACLU’s National Security Project in New York, where her docket included cases challenging torture, mass surveillance, and racial and religious profiling. Prior to joining the ACLU, she clerked for the Honorable Betty B. Fletcher, U.S. Circuit Judge for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and for the Honorable Margaret M. Morrow, U.S. District Judge for the Central District of California. She holds degrees from New York University School of Law, the London School of Economics, and the University of California, Los Angeles.
