Sadye Stern L’22

Sadye hopes to use the law to support people organizing for economic justice and decarceration. Prior to returning to school, Sadye worked as an organizer for the Hotel Trades Council, where she collaborated with workers, organizers, and attorneys to strengthen the union’s internal organizing structure and win collective bargaining agreements that guaranteed workers’ access to living wages, safety and respect, fair representation, and employer accountability.

Sadye decided to pursue a JD/MSW joint degree so she may better understand how the law reinforces structural inequality and how it may be leveraged for change. Sadye serves as a Direct Service Fellow and SP2 Development Director for the Youth Advocacy Project and is a member of the National Lawyer’s Guild and the cross-school Prison Abolition Reading Group.
