Ms. Butler has a long standing interest in human and civil rights, especially as those areas relate to individuals who are harmed when their sexuality is used against them. During law school, Ms. Butler researched the potential application of international human rights instruments in recognizing the rights of sex workers. While conducting this research, Ms. Butler became aware of the many intersecting needs of sex workers, survivors of sex trafficking, and others involved in commercial sex. She is determined to assist anyone whose rights have been violated while involved in commercial sex, regardless of the reason an individual is involved. She provides assistance with an emphasis on compassion, dignity, and respect for individual autonomy.
Prior to joining Amara, Ms. Butler was an Attorney Fellow with the federal civil rights litigation firm, Victor M. Glasberg & Associates, in Alexandria, Virginia. She also clerked for a federal magistrate judge in the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota. Ms. Butler holds a J.D. from The George Washington University Law School. She is admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the District of Columbia.
