Julian Suh-Toma is a junior in Benjamin Franklin College from La Crescenta, California majoring in sociology. Drawing from working with immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Los Angeles County, his academic interests lie in the intersections of gender violence, human trafficking, and law. Coming from policy advocacy work with the ACLU of Southern California and Asian Americans Advancing Justice SoCal, Julian seeks to apply lessons learned from studying grand strategy to changing the cultural, economic, and legal axes of gender violence, both locally and nationally. At Yale, Julian serves as the undergraduate student body president, and as a director with Yale Model UN Taiwan. He also works as a Communication and Consent Educator (CCE), working to positively shift the campus sexual climate and reduce incidences of harm. He has formerly served as an executive board member for the Yale Policy Institute (YPI), the Asian American Students Alliance (AASA), and conducted psychology research on decision-making with the Thinking Lab. Last summer, he studied in Busan, South Korea as a Critical Language Scholar with the U.S. Department of State, where he was introduced to the social and political landscape around gender violence by local human rights agencies. In his downtime, Julian loves all sports and recreation. He plays for Yale’s C2 Club Soccer team and formerly coordinated intramurals for his college.
