Central to our work is elevating the voices of individuals who are directly impacted by the legal system. That’s why we will soon be launching the inaugural Justice Fellows Policy Program cohort, which centers around a vibrant and nurturing community of directly impacted, formerly incarcerated individuals who have overcome the odds and attained their bachelor’s or master’s degree, created programs and organizations for the formerly incarcerated community, engaged in state legislative advocacy efforts, and more.
The Justice Fellows will use their lived experience to inform, review, amplify, and reflect on Ed Trust’s policy recommendations for justice-impacted students. Additionally, Justice Fellows will inform and guide Ed Trust’s structured engagements and convenings at the intersection of higher education policy and the criminal legal system.
Sign up today to receive our announcement of each fellow and to have information on what the fellows are working delivered directly to your inbox!
