CCR Staff

Meet the CCR staff. Our legal, advocacy and Bertha Justice Institute staff, housed in the Legal Department, and our communications staff, are responsible for CCR’s programmatic work. Our Development and Administration Departments, meanwhile, make all of our other efforts possible. Together, we’re a team passionately devoted to our clients and the justice struggles in which our litigation and advocacy work is grounded.
