Today I'm speaking Emily Galvin-Almanza
She is a former public defender who earned the Deborah Rhode Prize for her work in public interest law, while at Stanford Law School, and was praised as one of the top lawyers under 40 by the American Bar Association. In the last year, Emily has spoken and written as an expert in criminal legal reform for outlets across the country.
She's the cofounder and executive director of partners for justice.
Partners for Justice trains non-attorney Advocates to provide clients with case navigation and wraparound support. In addition, they help public defenders protect people from incarceration and other criminal penalties.
She is a true badass, and she makes me believe change regarding the criminal justice system can happen.
