Free Speech For People, a national non-profit public interest advocacy organization dedicated to challenging unchecked corporate power and big money in politics, is pleased to announce Jasmine Gomez as the winner of the 2016-18 Democracy Honors Fellowship.
Ms. Gomez, who will graduate from Boston University Law School this spring, serves on the Journal of Science and Technology Law and has written about potential state responses to corporate “Big Data” surveillance. She has held a number of leadership roles at the law school, including as Co-President of the Latin American Law Student Association, Vice President of the American Constitution Society, and Networking Chair for OutLaw, and she received the Emerging Leader Award from the Black Law Students Association. During law school, she interned at the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice and the National Consumer Law Center, and has done pro bono work for the Mississippi Center for Justice and several Boston public schools.
Ms. Gomez will join Free Speech For People’s Boston-based Legal Advocacy Program in September 2016, where she will work with Legal Director Ron Fein on advancing the national movement to amend the U.S. Constitution to overturn Citizens United and restore a pro-democracy Constitution.
