Emily Woo Kee joined the PJC in June 2022 as a paralegal for the Workplace Justice Project, after graduating from Smith College with a B.S. in Government and a focus in International Politics. Emily’s time at Smith gave them the opportunity to explore the intersections of capitalism, racial oppression, and climate change, which inspired them to become a student organizer on campus. Besides the climate crisis, Emily also became invested in Latin American politics, which resulted in research concerning immigration, trade, and the water politics of the Rio Grande. Emily is excited to apply their research and writing skills to a legal setting and learn how law can be used to further social justice. Emily is originally from El Paso, Texas, and La Junta, Chihuahua, which is in northern Mexico. As of right now their interests include swimming, collecting new house plants, and exploring Baltimore!
