Saint Judy tells the true story of Los Angeles immigration attorney Judy Wood, who single-handedly changed the United States law of asylum and saved countless lives in the process.
In a landmark case, one of her first as an immigration lawyer, Judy Wood represented an Afghan woman who fled her home country after being persecuted by the Taliban for opening a school for girls. After a tenacious battle both in and out of court, Judy's efforts culminated in arguments before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit where she fought to include women as a protected class.

The Human Rights Project was founded in 1993 in order to protect the rights of immigrants and refugees who have been victims of torture. It has since expanded its role to encompass women's rights and children's rights.
The organization's principles are taken from the constitution that all people are born equal and inalienable rights. "With Liberty and Justice for All," It is evident that many men, women, and children suffer from extreme injustices at the hands of their own native governments.
Our vision at the Human Rights Project is to continue to bring these types of global injustices to the forefront of our country's national awareness by using our legal knowledge and expertise to seek justice for victims of social inequities.
