New Fellow to Launch Employment Discrimination Project for People with Disabilities

We are proud to launch the Disability Employment Discrimination Project by Independence Fellow Julie R. Foster. 

Julie Foster

The mission of the project is to enforce disability rights and to help individuals with disabilities access and remain in the workforce.

Through the project Julie will provide direct representation and legal advice to low-income people with disabilities, education and outreach to employers and employees. The project will build toward impact litigation to remedy systemic discrimination.

Julie graduated Order of the Coif from University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2012, and has worked at the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations, the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights and the AIDS Law Project. Her two-year fellowship is generously sponsored by the Independence Foundation.
