She is a Representative of the Genocide Intervention Network through which she is working to build a permanent political constituency against genocide and mass atrocity. She co-founded the Harvard Darfur Action Group, a cross-campus organization which was involved in Harvard's precedent-setting decision to divest from companies supporting the Sudanese government. As a Chayes International Public Service Fellow, Rebecca spent the summer of 2005 working as a legal clerk to the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. Before starting law school she worked in Sudan, where she executed a plan to help Sudan's internally displaced population. Rebecca is currently researching the impact of Darfur advocacy on the decision-making of the Executive branch of the US Government, and recently co-authored, "Not On Our Watch" - about the formation of the US civil society movement for Darfur, published in War In Darfur and the Search for Peace (Harvard University Press, 2007). Rebecca has written op-eds in the International Herald Tribune: Sudan After Garang: Saving the Peace, and Boston Globe: Who Says Student Activism is Dead? and has also authored an article on R2P for the Harvard Human Rights Journal, " The Responsibility to Protect: From Document to Doctrine-But What of Implementation?"
