Lauren is trying to put herself out of business - and wants you to help!

Lauren Burke is a legal disruptor – she’s disrupting the legal system and her job. Since graduating from NYU School of Law in 2009, Lauren has dedicated her career to empowering immigrants and children, focusing on survivors of trauma. Fluent in Mandarin, she received a Skadden Fellowship to work with Chinese teenage victims of labor trafficking, brought to the U.S. under severe debt bondage. She developed the New York Asian Women’s Center in-house immigration law practice for survivors of human trafficking, sexual assault and domestic violence. Unsatisfied with the paternalistic and actively disempowering way nonprofits worked with young immigrants, she partnered with three of her former clients and founded Atlas: DIY (Developing Immigrant Youth) a cooperative empowerment center for immigrant youth and their allies. She’s giving it away for free.
