CHAMPIONING FIRST AMENDMENT FREEDOMS

“This fundamental freedom is here so that we can express ourselves even when we don’t agree…our democracy is built on the notion that we can have a robust discussion and debate about issues that not everyone sees eye to eye on.”

– Kerrie Campbell, The Kojo Nnamdi Show, The ACLU Sues Metro for Banning Milo Yiannapolous Book Ad and More (August 14, 2017)

As a civil rights advocate, Ms. Campbell represented Lt. Colonel Martha McSally—the first woman to command a U.S. Air Force fighter squadron, now serving in the House of Representatives (R-Tucson)— in her successful challenge of Department of Defense regulations requiring American servicewomen stationed in Saudi Arabia to wear the Islamic abaya and ride in the backseat of vehicles.

Determined to take a stand for equal pay for women, Ms. Campbell has publicly challenged systematic and entrenched gender discrimination in pay, power and promotions within the legal profession. Ms Campbell currently serves as lead plaintiff in a groundbreaking lawsuit alleging class-wide gender discrimination claims against a global Big Law firm. Ms. Campbell’s deep commitment to the pursuit of gender equality has been the subject of numerous national and international press reports in prominent publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, The National Law Journal, The American Lawyer and Law360.

As an advocate to safeguard against the government’s restriction of protected speech, Ms. Campbell served as lead counsel on the brief of the Cato Institute as amicus curiae in an appeal challenging a New Orleans law requiring tour guides to be tested and certified as an unconstitutional content-based restriction on speech.
