2017 Weinglass Fellow Emily Posner to Fight Toxic Prisons

Emily Posner

We’re thrilled to announce the 2017 Weinglass Fellowship recipient!

Emily Posner will be collaborating with the Campaign to Fight Toxic Prisons and the Abolitionist Law Center to work on a strategic campaign to exhaust federal inmate’s administrative remedies in an effort to challenge the Bureau of Prison’s proposal to build a new maximum security prison on a former coal mining site in Kentucky. Congratulations, Emily!

The 2016 Weinglass Fellow was Max Suchan of NLG-Chicago. Read about his experience in the Winter 2016 issue of Guild Notes, “Inaugural NLG Weinglass Fellowship Triples Capacity for Chicago Community Bond Fund”
