2023 RBG Scholarship Recipient
Ms. Moyer is entering her third year at University of Southern California, Gould School of Law this fall. Since her undergraduate years, where she witnessed how her university failed survivors of sexual violence, Ms. Moyer has been committed to advancing gender equality. During her sophomore year, she Ms. Moyer was selected as a Violence Intervention and Prevention Intern, where she helped develop and implement a bystander intervention program that reached over 10,000 students. During her senior year, Ms. Moyer created a campus-wide survey, which produced data that was used to urge campus administration to implement resources to help sexual violence survivors. Ms. Moyer was then invited to the California State Capitol to share the data that she obtained with legislators and to provide testimony for AB 1927, a bill that helps dismantle reporting barriers for underaged survivors.
Once in law school, Ms. Moyer continued her advocacy for gender equality and social justice. During the summer after her first year, Ms. Moyer worked as an intern for the Lone Star Justice Alliance, where she filed clemency applications for survivors of sexual violence and advocated for access to adequate resources for survivors. During the spring semester of 2023, Ms. Moyer worked as an extern for the ACLU’s LGBTQ, Gender & Reproductive Justice Project, where she tackled projects involving pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment, and access to name change services for transgender people.
This summer, Ms. Moyer is working as a Policy and Advocacy Intern at the California Women’s Law Center where she will be handling issues related to gender discrimination, women’s health, and violence against women. After law school, Ms. Moyer hopes to continue her fight against gender inequality by working in litigation or public policy at a non-profit firm in Los Angeles.
