LiJia Gong Joins Public Rights Project As Our Inaugural Staff Attorney

EXCITING NEWS: We are thrilled to announce that LiJia Gong, Georgetown Law ‘13, has joined Public Rights Project as our inaugural Staff Attorney!

“I am thrilled to join Public Rights Project as a staff attorney,” says LiJia, who is an attorney with a background in litigation, policy and political strategy.

Prior to joining PRP, LiJia worked on the 2018 campaign to re-elect Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and served as a law clerk for Judge Kiyo Matsumoto of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York and as a law fellow for Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.

As the newest member of our team, LiJia will be instrumental in our strategic engagement with our partner offices across the country, providing legal support, resources and capacity on matters involving wage theft, employment discrimination, fair housing, and more.

 “I am excited to bring my experience in litigation, policy and politics to support PRP’s work! I believe that cities and states—as the units of government closest to the needs of their residents—have a unique opportunity to ensure that the laws are enforced to protect our most vulnerable communities, especially now.”

Welcome to the team, LiJia.
