CREEC is a membership organization that has the goal of ensuring that everyone can fully and independently participate in our nation’s civic life without discrimination based on race, gender, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity. As our name suggests, CREEC promotes this goal through education — member input, instructional materials, individual advocacy, persuasion, hectoring, humor, collaboration, and animated YouTube videos — and enforcement, that is, investigating and filing lawsuits. Amy Robertson and her husband, Tim Fox, co-founded CREEC in 2013. Amy received her law degree from Yale Law School in 1988 and her B.A. from Swarthmore College in 1983. She lived in Taiwan between college and law school and still speaks conversational Mandarin Chinese. Following law school, Amy clerked for the Hon. Richard L. Williams of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. From 1996 to 2013, she and Tim were the plaintiffs' civil rights firm of Fox & Robertson.
