This years honorees are:

Nadia Ben-Youssef (Rob Doyle Award) worked with Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel until co-founding the Adalah Justice Project (AJP) in 2017 to shift American discourse and policy on Palestine/Israel through public education, legal partnerships and community-based advocacy. AJP is committed to building a transnational movement against supremacy and state-sanctioned violence in partnership with lawyers, organizers, and artists.

Jasmine Gomez (Rob Doyle Award) is the Democracy Honors Fellow at Free Speech For People, and works to pass a constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics, end corporate personhood and promote political equality. She is also a community activist that fights for racial equity, queer and trans liberation and the de-colonization of Puerto Rico.

Luke Ryan (Lawyer Award) is a partner in the Northampton law firm of Sasson, Turnbull, Ryan and Hoose and serves on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Luke’s advocacy on behalf of indigent defendants helped uncover the true scope of misconduct at the Amherst Drug Lab and led to the dismissal of thousands of tainted drug convictions.

Massachusetts Bail Fund (Legal Worker Award) pays up to $500 bail so that low-income people can stay free while they work towards resolving their case, which allows individuals, families, and communities to stay productive, together, and stable. The Mass. Bail Fund is committed to the harm reduction of freeing individuals serving pre-trial sentences and to abolishing pre-trial detention.

Nicole Holbrook (Student Award) is a third year law student at Boston University. After reviving the BU NLG chapter, she helped organize a “Resistance Series” with other Massachusetts student NLG chapters. Nicole is also an organizer around issues of labor, sexual harassment, and public interest opportunities.

NLG Litigation Committee (Special Recognition) – Since its inception in 2011, the NLG Litigation Committee has brought lawsuits against government agencies and other large institutions which engage in repressive or predatory actions. Members of this unique NLG Committee – Jeff Feuer, Julie Gallup, Lee Goldstein, David Kelston, Urszula Masny-Latos, Jonathan Messinger, Vincent Petrocelli, Jeff Petrucelly, and Eden Williams – have successfully prosecuted civil lawsuits on behalf of prisoners, political activists, and others, and have several actions pending.
