Organizations mentioned/involved: Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA)
Now based in Brownsville — a twin city of Harlingen on the Mexican border — Youker, 44, coordinates labor and employment cases for Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, which provides free services to thousands of low-income residents and migrant workers.
Many of her cases have involved workplace sexual harassment. One of her clients, Carmen Garza, won about a year’s pay in a March settlement after suing her employers for failing to protect her from sexual harassment while working as home care aide.
Youker is coordinating a Times Up grant to help Texas RioGrande expand community outreach on sexual harassment.
