  • Trainer: Developed, executed and analyzed trainings for hundreds of volunteers from four separate anti-trafficking and domestic violence agencies serving distinct immigrant communities. This groundbreaking program taught volunteers not only to be pro-social bystanders against domestic and sexual violence, but also to recruit others in their communities to end gender-based violence.

Campus Sexual Assault / Title IX

Jerin was one of two students who spearheaded the campus sexual assault, stalking and domestic violence policy for the largest, urban, public university in the nation. She began working on the policy almost a decade before campus rape began making regular headlines.
