Bailey Robbins, a rising 2L at William & Mary Law School, was born and raised in Vermont. She graduated from Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts, with a degree in Children’s Studies and a minor in Education. Through her involvement with local non-profit organizations addressing poverty and homelessness, Bailey developed a passion for human rights work.
Bailey will spend the summer in Johannesburg, South Africa, working with the Khulumani Support Group. Khulumani is a membership-based organization of more than 100,000 victims and survivors of Apartheid-related gross human rights violations. Khulumani’s mission is to build an inclusive and just society in which the dignity of people harmed by Apartheid is restored through the process of transforming victims into victors. Bailey will be assisting Khulumani in addressing legal issues surrounding a nation-wide movement they have recently taken under their umbrella, called “Destitute Ex-Miners in South Africa.”
