The Racial Justice and Juvenile Defense Fellowship was designed in 2018 to advance racial justice advocacy in the Juvenile Justice Initiative.

During the two-year fellowship, the Fellow works with GJJI staff to improve the systems youth encounter through policy reform and to develop resources to help juvenile defenders incorporate racial justice arguments into their youth advocacy. The Fellow’s responsibilities include legal research and writing, project management, community outreach, and policy advocacy.
