Meet the Fellows 

From law students to movement lawyering elders, nascent legal collectives to well-established legal service agencies, these 15 innovators have bold ideas about how law can better defend, support and embolden black communities. Our 2018 Fellows are working to address the range of critical issues impacting Black communities including housing rights, economic justice, criminal justice reform and prison abolition and were selected based on their commitment to their community, the boldness of their ideas, and the potential for immediate and sustainable impact in their work.
