A member of Mid-Pen’s Class of 2012, Kendall Anderson is a Client Advocate at Justice At Last, the only independent nonprofit law firm in the Bay Area exclusively serving the legal needs of survivors of human trafficking. She holds a MA in Urban and Public Affairs from The University of San Francisco and a BA in Political, Legal, and Economic Analysis from Mills College.

Kendall’s interest in social justice and anti-human trafficking began during her undergraduate studies. While Kendall was a student at Mills College, she successfully advocated for changes in the Oakland Police Department’s treatment of victims in the Special Victim’s Unit. After college, she spent three years in sales at The RealReal, an online luxury consignment and fashion startup. While in grad school, Kendall focused her academic research on human trafficking and was a public policy fellow at the San Francisco Department on the Status of Women. She wrote her thesis on human trafficking interventions in aviation, focusing on SFO’s bathroom sticker initiative.

To the Class of 2024

With perspective gained from four years of high school, members of the Class of 2023 shared their hard-earned wisdom with members of the Class of 2024, as they prepared to take on the mantle of Mid-Pen's student leaders. Take heed; theirs is valuable advice for student and adult alike!

Congratulations to the Class of 2023 on their acceptance to more than 50 colleges and universities all around the country!
