* Fluke was a member of the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions that advocated for policies impacting the lives of domestic-violence victims. She also interned with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking; the Polaris Project; Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County; Break the Cycle; the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project; the NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund; Crime Victim and Sexual Assault Services; and the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County.
* In early March 2012, professors, staffers and students at Georgetown and other law schools signed a statement that “strongly condemn[ed] the recent personal attacks on our student” (Sandra Fluke). One signatory was Georgetown law professor Rosa Brooks, who had served from 2009-2011 as the Obama administration’s adviser to the undersecretary of defense for policy. Journalist Aaron Klein pointed out that yet another close Obama associate, John Podesta, was a visiting professor at Georgetown Law School during the Fluke controversy.
