Carly Gammill

Carly Gammill

Counsel for Litigation Strategy
StandWithUs Saidoff Legal Department

Carly Gammill is the Founding Director of the StandWithUs Center for Combating Antisemitism. She is a constitutional litigator with extensive experience assisting clients on an array of issues, including freedom of speech and religious liberties. For the past decade-plus, she has been active in fighting antisemitism on campuses, in local communities, in court, and at the United Nations. Her passion for this work, particularly on campuses, derives from her background in the educational field, as well as from a deep personal conviction that the world—including people of all races and religions—cannot afford to stand by silently while the Jewish people are once again targeted, marginalized, demonized, and harmed. To that end, she regularly works with students, professors, and members of the broader community to inform them about their legal rights and ensure they are best positioned to protect those rights.
