Forbes named Sonya Passi ’13 to its annual 30 Under 30 list in Law & Policy.
Passi founded FreeFrom, a national nonprofit that works to combat economic barriers to justice for survivors of domestic violence. In law school, she co-founded the Family Violence Appellate Project, which mobilizes pro bono representation for California survivors.
“If victims can leave their situation without facing poverty and homelessness, a life free from violence becomes attainable,” Passi says.
