Senior Policy Counsel

Americans for Financial Reform Education Fund

Linda Jun is Senior Policy Counsel at Americans for Financial Reform Education Fund (AFREF), a nonpartisan coalition formed in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis working to lay the foundation for a strong, stable, and ethical financial system. In collaboration with coalition partners, she leads AFREF’s legislative and regulatory advocacy on consumer finance and housing issues. Before joining AFREF, she was Senior Staff Attorney in the Foreclosure Prevention Project at Mobilization for Justice (formerly MFY Legal Services) in New York City, where she represented homeowners in all stages of foreclosure proceedings, including administrative complaints, pleadings, settlement conference negotiations, motion practice, discovery, and affirmative litigation in state and federal court. She has presented at several local, state, and national trainings and conferences on a wide range of consumer finance, fair lending, and homeownership issues. In 2016, she was one of four primary authors of the NYRL report Divergent Paths: The Need for More Uniform Standards and Practices in New York State’s Residential Foreclosure Conference Process. Before her work at Mobilization for Justice, Ms. Jun spent two years starting a new court-based foreclosure mediation program in the Third Judicial Circuit in Illinois, creating the program’s infrastructure and drafting the local court rule for the program. Ms. Jun graduated cum laude from the Washington University School of Law in St. Louis and received her B.A. from Northwestern University.
