NLADA - Reentry Coalition Coordinator, PA
Because the quality of justice in America should not depend on how much money a person has, National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA) leads public defenders, community advocates, and civil attorneys to advance justice and expand opportunity for all by promoting excellent delivery of legal services for people who cannot afford counsel. NLADA’s AmeriCorps VISTA program, Defending Communities in Service, builds sustainable community relationships, data systems, and practices that allow public defender offices to more holistically support communities in need. In this position, NLADA has partnered with the Public Defender Office of Delaware County, PA. Delaware County has undergone a reckoning over the past three years to reimagine what reentry could mean. As part of this, the Public Defender’s Office has joined the Reentry Coalition to ensure that their clients’ voices are heard. This position will be on the ground and building relationships across the area to improve access to resources for people coming home from incarceration. Join today to be part of welcoming everyone to Delaware County!
