Leah began her work at NCLEJ in August 2014 as the second Paul M. Dodyk Fellow for Economic Justice. She has represented low-wage workers and community-based organizations who are fighting, through litigation and policy advocacy, to stop wage theft, ensure fair pay, and defend the rights of immigrant community leaders to freedom of speech and assembly. Leah previously was a Senior Staff Attorney with Georgia Legal Services Program’s Farmworker Rights Division, where Leah litigated federal court cases on behalf of both local U.S. farm workers and H-2A guest workers from Mexico to seek justice for minimum wage violations. She has also litigated federal court employment discrimination cases to fight for workers turned away and unjustly fired from farm work jobs on account of their race and national origin.
