Founder of The School Justice Project, Inc. with Claire Blumenson
Sarah Comeau 2013 Fellow, Black Male Achievement Fellowship
Protect and enforce the special education rights of older black male students involved in the D.C. juvenile justice system by providing free special education representation, legal advocacy, and rights-based trainings.
The mission of the School Justice Project is to protect and enforce the special education rights of older students during incarceration and throughout reentry. As education attorneys, we provide direct representation and legal advocacy to court-involved youth ages 17-22 with special education needs to ensure they are afforded quality education and transition services. We envision a system wide overhaul that redefines the education landscape for these students. As the only organization of its kind, SJP aims to dismantle systemic barriers and force urban juvenile justice and school systems to address the unmet needs of this ignored population.
