Chelsea Naylor works with clients in the Greater DC Office as a DOJ Accredited Representative. Prior to Tahirih, Chelsea was the Community Outreach Director with Habitat for Humanity of Trenton in New Jersey and FUTURO Program Manager with the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund (LALDEF). In 2016, she obtained her M.A. in International Law and Human Rights at the United Nations University in Costa Rica. While at the University, she also worked with migrants in the coffee plantations and contributed to upgrading the university’s sexual harassment policy. She now focuses on U Visas, T Visas, VAWA, and Adjustment of Status.
“Tahirih is one of the most truly client-centered organizations I have encountered. This focus on the women and girls we serve, rather than on our own ideas, egos, or plans, is what distinguishes a strong, effective organization from the rest.”
