Welcome, Rebecca Cleary!

March 24, 2021

DSW is thrilled to welcome Rebecca (Becca) Cleary, J.D., to the team! Cleary joins DSW as a staff attorney. She is guided by the belief that a more equitable society is possible through comprehensive policy reform that creates access to justice and abolishes barriers to well-being. As a legal intern with the Legal Aid Society’s Exploitation Intervention Project (EIP), she provided criminal defense support to sex workers and trafficking survivors. She continued that work as a student at CUNY Law, writing about post-conviction relief and working on vacatur applications for EIP clients. After graduating, she joined DSW as an intern, providing research support before joining the team full time. Cleary is a born-and-bred New Yorker, lifelong activist, mutual aid organizer, dog lover, Mets fan, and skater looking forward to being able to hit the roller derby track again when it’s safe.
