URI’s Working Internship Network celebrated its 15-year anniversary in September, holding a graduation ceremony for its 15 residents for the first time in the program’s history.

We are pleased to welcome Jae Young Kim, the new attorney for URI’s Domestic Violence Legal Education and Advocacy Program (LEAP). Since graduating from New York University in 2003, Ms. Kim has worked to provide legal services and protection for victims of domestic violence across NYC.

We’d like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Lorraine Madry for her 35 years of dedicated service to URI, as she recently retired from her role as Senior Program Director at Urban Women’s Retreat. Her leadership, compassion, and commitment to improving the lives of domestic violence victims have been an inspiration to us all, and she will be sorely missed.
