Facilitating community-led creation of solidarity economy enterprises in California for a sustainable and equitable present and future
Jiyoung’s law practice has been primarily in labor and civil litigation. While she still litigates, she is focused on building the sustainable and equitable future we need by supporting community-led efforts to create worker-owned cooperatives and community land trusts.
Jiyoung is lifelong activist, who has fought for justice on behalf of workers, immigrants, and protesters. She created a jail support project in Los Angeles at the height of the protests following the murder of George Floyd. Jiyoung is currently organizing to create a public bank in Los Angeles. She serves as a Silver Lake Neighborhood Council Governing Board Member, an Executive Board Member in Democratic State Central Committee, and a Member of the Los Angeles County Democratic Central Committee. We have witnessed our economic and social systems fail us – that is why she is committed to shifting the paradigm to a solidarity economy.
Jiyoung lives and practices in Los Angeles, which is located on the traditional lands of the Tongva, Kizh and Chumash peoples. She is a graduate of Loyola Law School and Tulane University.
