Aurora served up justice for nearly 20 years in legal aid as a public interest lawyer who grew up from intern to executive director at Columbia Legal Services. During her tenure, she led Columbia's transformation to become a creative social justice advocacy organization with a mission to integrate civil legal needs with civil rights, engaging in legal advocacy on behalf of people living in poverty through impact litigation, policy work, and multimedia education. Building upon her experience in the nonprofit community, Aurora also serves as a guest speaker for various seminars and workshops on diversity and leadership, and as faculty for the Nonprofit Certificate Program of the University of Washington Continuing Professional Education Program.

Other stuff she's done include a National Equal Justice Works Fellowship serving low-income tenants; developing various pipeline education programs serving farm worker students; and clerking for the Washington State Supreme Court.
