Leigh Goodmark Calls for Clemency for Trafficking Victims

Former Fellow Leigh Goodmark (’95) co-authored an article for the University of Minnesota’s Gender Policy Report calling on the Trump administration to grant clemency to criminalized survivors of trafficking and violence in federal prisons. (“Clemency for War Criminals but Not Survivors of Trafficking and Violence?” May 30). “There is a group of people seeking clemency from this administration who deserve an immediate and just response: survivors of trafficking, exploitation, and intimate partner violence who have been prosecuted and convicted, labeled sex offenders and sentenced to long terms of incarceration.”
