Elizabeth Haddix joined the UNC Center for Civil Rights in 2010. After earning her B.A. from Duke University in 1992, Elizabeth Haddix taught Spanish at Southwest Edgecombe High School near Pine Tops, NC. She earned her J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law in 1998, and was awarded a fellowship from the National Association for Public Interest Law, which she used to represent low-income workers as a staff attorney at the North Carolina Justice Center. Haddix then entered private practice with the employment and civil rights firm of Edelstein & Payne in Raleigh, NC, and continued to represent workers as support attorney to UE Local 150, the NC Public Service Workers Union, whose principal challenge continues to be winning public employee collective bargaining rights for North Carolina workers. Since 2005, Haddix has had a solo law practice serving low-income workers across the state, many of whom speak only Spanish, Haddix's second language. Haddix specialized in employment discrimination claims under both state and federal law.
