Justice Rivera for Open Society Foundations

In June, I photographed Justice Rivera around downtown Seattle for Open Society Foundations.  Rivera is one of 17 winners of the 2019 Soros Justice Fellowship, an award of $1.5 million dollars that supports policy advocates, lawyers, grassroots organizers and scholars whose projects advance a more accountable criminal justice system. 

Rivera is writing a book illustrating how the war on sex trafficking is a continuation of the war on drugs. She is a partner with Reframe Health and Justice, where she works to advance public health and human rights approaches to drug use, sex work, violence and labor.
