2022 RBG Scholarship Recipient
Ms. Chung is entering her second year at UCLA School of Law this fall. At UCLA Law, Ms. Chung is enrolled in the David J. Epstein Public Interest Law & Policy Program and the Critical Race Studies Program.
Ms. Chung’s commitment towards advancing reproductive justice is longstanding and remarkable. Ms. Chung has served many roles to make an impact in the reproductive justice movement: she was a patient escort for an abortion clinic, an abortion doula, a driver for those who needed rides to abortion clinics, and a community organizer for an abortion fund. After graduating from Williams College, Ms. Chung was a community organizing fellow for the Abortion Liberation Fund of Pennsylvania and a member of the Philadelphia Reproductive Freedom Collective. She was also a paralegal for Philadelphia Legal Assistance, where she assisted low-income survivors of domestic violence and low-income patients in civil legal matters.
During law school, Ms. Chung became a member of UCLA Law’s If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice chapter (where she will be co-chair this coming year) and a volunteer researcher for the school’s Abortion Criminalization Project.
This past summer, Ms. Chung interned with ACLU SoCal’s LGBTQ, Gender, and Reproductive Justice Project. While she is originally from the East Coast, Ms. Chung hopes to support California’s critical role in ensuring reproductive justice for all after law school.
