Sunu P. Chandy, Legal Director at the National Women’s Law Center in Washington, D.C., will discuss current litigation, in which the National Women’s Law Center has taken a leadership role, challenging the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back civil rights laws in education, healthcare, and the workplace. In addition, she will discuss the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, housed at the National Women’s Law Center, which works with the Center’s Legal Network for Gender Equity to enable more individuals who experience sexual assault, abuse or harassment to find legal representation. TIME’S UP was started by women in the entertainment industry to combat the systemic power imbalances that have prevented many women, especially women of color, from being safe and reaching their full potential in the workplace.
