ERA Wins The Recorder’s Innovators Award
Equal Rights Advocates staff members, including Executive Director Noreen Farrell, were among a group of legal innovators recognized by The Recorder legal newspaper in San Francisco on December 10th. The award was given to individuals “who are finding clever ways to reduce client costs, improve experiences and outcomes, and serve larger communities by bringing a fresh eye, and sometimes a little technological know-how, to the challenges their organizations face.”
ERA received a nod in particular for its Proyecto La Voz, which connects low income women workers with the legal help and resources they need to vindicate their employment rights, as well as provides a platform for legislative advocacy, community education, and outreach. While managed by Skadden Fellow Joelle Emerson, Proyecto La Voz trained over 700 advocates at 21 organizations in 5 Bay Area counties on increasing access to legal resources for women workers.
