Malorie Palmer joins AEquitas, where she will be working to improve access to justice in gender-based violence and human trafficking cases. Malorie is driven by a fierce commitment to preventing and prosecuting sex crimes. Graduating with a joint J.D/M.S.W. (Masters in Social Work) from Indiana University’s McKinney School of Law in 2020, Malorie has already approached the issue from multiple legal vantage points. Whether seeking civil protection orders at Indiana Legal Services, or convictions on behalf of survivors of gender-based violence at Indiana Prosecuting Attorney’s Council, Malorie draws on her M.S.W. to deliver more than legal outcomes. She connects her clients to the care and services they need in order to access meaningful relief. Her fellowship year will be spent refining her skills as an advocate for survivors, and learning from others in the field in order to effectively reduce gender-based violence.
