Maryam Emory is an Equal Justice Works Fellow, sponsored by Greenberg Traurig, LLP and Steptoe & Johnson LLP. She is helping expand the Healthy Together medical-legal partnership, by working to bridge the widening health and education disparity gaps facing Black and Latinx children in D.C., who have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. She provides direct legal representation and outreach to Black and Latinx children and their families in matters relating to public benefits, obtaining timely education evaluations, language access laws, and housing conditions. As a law student, Maryam interned in medical-legal partnerships at Children’s Law Center and the Legal Council for Health Justice. Before embarking on her legal career, Maryam served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ecuador where she enhanced and combined her Spanish language skills with her passion for health equity.
