Mercedes is the newest member of the Justice At Last team. Inspired by the bravery of her younger sister who survived sex-trafficking in the United States, Mercedes actively seeks to be part of the solution to the problem of human trafficking. She’s interested in the intersectionality of technology, law, and anti-human trafficking–with emphasis on how technology can help survivors of human trafficking to navigate the legal system. Mercedes graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in May of 2019 with a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies (ISF) studying the fields of anthropology, sociology, and linguistics. She also volunteers with the Anti-Trafficking Coalition at Berkeley (BATC); and studies coding in her spare time.
