Becky Walker works at the Texas Advocacy Project in Austin, focused on combating domestic violence and sexual assault in the LGBTQIA+ community through direct legal services and community outreach. Her work is funded by the Mike A. Myers Fellowship in Public Interest Law, a Texas Law postgraduate fellowship that supports a recent graduate to work for a public interest legal organization providing legal services to victims of domestic violence or sexual assault.

At Texas Law, Becky participated in the Domestic Violence Clinic, served as president of OUTLaw, and volunteered for many Mithoff Pro Bono Program projects, including the Trans Name and Gender Marker Project, Expunction Clinics, and the winter break trip to South Texas. She spent the summer after her first year at the Alaska Department of Law in Anchorage working on foster care issues. The summer after her second year, she worked on a variety of criminal matters, including domestic violence and sexual assault cases, at the New York County District Attorney’s Office in Manhattan.
