Erika is a legal intern at SELC for the summer of 2020 and an incoming third-year law student at Harvard. She is currently sheltering in place in Boston, MA. At SELC, she has been working with mutual aid groups, doing legal research, and recently gave a presentation to 40+ lawyers on radical homeownership and how to get land out of the speculative market. During these difficult times, Erika has been inspired by communities coming together to meet their own needs and support each other, and she hopes to use her legal education to help grow institutions to sustain this movement. One thing that Erika recently learned that blew her mind is that contracts can be written as cartoons!
