Rebecca is a Civil Rights Attorney at Equal Justice Under Law, a nonprofit that engages in impact litigation across the country to challenge wealth-based discrimination in the criminal justice system. Rebecca also has a background in voting rights. She previously served as a Legal Fellow at LatinoJustice PRLDEF, where she advocated against prison gerrymandering — the practice of counting incarcerated people where they are imprisoned instead of at home for redistricting purposes — and helped to coordinate the organization's first nonpartisan, bilingual voter protection initiative in five states.

A graduate of Columbia Law School, Rebecca interned with the ACLU Voting Rights Project, the Justice Program at the Brennan Center for Justice, and the Civil Action Practice at the Bronx Defenders. She also participated in Columbia's Sexuality and Gender Law Clinic. In 2015, Rebecca published a Note with the Columbia Journal of Race and Law entitled “Bars to Education: The Use of Criminal History Information in College Admissions.”
