Rekha, a first generation immigrant who grew up in Mesa, Arizona, is the lead attorney of the Justice for Immigrant & Families Project, which was launched by the Florence Project, in collaboration with the Phoenix Legal Action Network, in January 2018. This project provides quality, free legal representation to non-detained adults facing imminent deportation in Maricopa County. Rekha previously worked as an Assistant Federal Public Defender’s Office, Managing Attorney of the Florence Project’s adult team, and clerk to the Honorable Magistrate Judge Lois Bloom in the Eastern District of New York. Rekha loves speaking Spanglish, losing herself in a book, and eating chocolate; she abhors injustice and most fruit.
