Monique Worrell is a criminal and social justice reform advocate who brings a deep understanding of the issues. By working as a defense attorney, trial lawyer, law professor, and assistant state attorney, and Chief Legal Officer, Monique has experienced the problems in the system from all sides. Having gained this perspective, she has a track record of developing programs that challenge prevailing attitudes and systems, building understanding and consensus across constituencies, and driving change. As a leader, Monique is committed to mentoring and creating an inclusive and productive work environment where professionals can learn and grow.
Monique has been fighting for the rights of poor and disenfranchised communities for more than 20 years. She supports justice for all communities and understands the disparate minority representation in the criminal legal system, moreover, she has a plan to address these issues. By changing the culture of prosecution, we can reduce mass incarceration, end the school to prison pipeline, use treatment and rehabilitation as alternatives to incarceration, and increase transparency and accountability in the criminal legal system. This will reduce recidivism, and build a stronger, safer community for everyone.
