Rowan Gossett (B.A. 2020, Columbia University; J.D. expected 2025) will spend her summer with the Northwest Workers' Justice Project (NWJP) in Portland, OR. NWJP protects workplace dignity and confronts imbalances in power that cause inequity by providing legal support and education to low-wage, contingent, and immigrant workers. As an intern, Rowan will contribute to NWJP's litigation, policy advocacy, and trainings for workers and their organizations. During her first year at Texas Law, Rowan participated in the Mithoff Pro Bono Program's Gender Affirmation and immigration-focused projects and volunteered with RAICES. This fall, she will join the Immigration Clinic and serve as President of Texas Law's chapter of If/When/How. Rowan is committed to promoting economic and gender justice for immigrants with a special focus on rural workers. Before law school, Rowan spent her summers with an education-focused nonprofit in Mamelodi, South Africa and completed a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in Argentina. Her undergraduate senior thesis focused on rural Mapuche women's perspectives on the Chilean feminist movement, investigating erasure and overlap between indigenous and feminist movements in the Southern Cone. Rowan plans to pursue a career in human rights and immigration law.
