About

Veronica Shepp, M.A., is a Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Criminology,
Law, and Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is currently working
on her dissertation titled, "Seeking Support Under the State: Sex Workers' Experiences Navigating Gender-Based Violence Services and Informal Support." Broadly, Veronica's research examines the intersection of gender-based violence, informal and formal help-seeking and precarious and/or criminalized labor, and she seeks to promote anti-carceral responses to survivors. Veronica is also a bargaining committee member and labor organizer for UIC's graduate worker union GEO Local 6297. Follow Veronica on Twitter: @veronicaannes
