Welcome, Jayme!

The ACLU of Colorado staff has grown again! Jayme Kritzler recently came on board as our Economic Justice Fellow, a brand-new position that was made possible through a generous gift by one of our supporters. During her year-long fellowship, Jayme will dedicate her time to work around the intersection of poverty, inequality, and civil liberties  in Colorado. Join us in welcoming Jayme to the ACLU of Colorado team!

More about Jayme:

JaymeJayme graduated from the University of California, Davis in June 2014 with a degree in Community and Regional Development. As the 2014-2015 Economic Justice Fellow at the ACLU of Colorado, Jayme primarily investigates the inequities poor individuals face in Colorado’s criminal justice system to provide the basis for legislation, advocacy, litigation, and public education. While at UC Davis, Jayme had internships that related to social justice issues such as inner-city food insecurity and affordable housing. She also taught English language development to elementary-aged students at a public school and tutored at the Yolo County Juvenile Detention Facility. Jayme is absolutely thrilled to be at the ACLU. As a born-and-bred Californian, she can’t wait to explore the beautiful state of Colorado.
