Marvin Lim is a civil rights attorney with the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law working on gun violence, prevention litigation and advocacy with a number of organizations. An alumnus of DeKalb County, Atlanta, public schools, Lim joined the progressive movement because, as a kid, he was inspired by class field trips to Stone Mountain and the Martin Luther King Jr. Center. Today, he feels strongly the center represents the best of Georgia's past, present and future. He earned his B.A. from Emory University, graduating magna cum laude, and his J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was awarded the Benjamin N. Cardozo Prize for moot court. Previously, he served as the legislative counsel for the ACLU of Georgia, lobbying the Georgia General Assembly on religious liberty, equality, privacy, and criminal justice. He was also a Gruber Fellow at the national office of the ACLU, where he worked on the issue of religious liberty from both a U.S. and transnational perspective, the latter through a project spearheaded by the International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations. Lim was a defendant-intervenor in the Georgia v. Holder case on Georgia’s voter proof of citizenship law.
