Emma Coleman

Emma Coleman is a Millennial Public Policy Fellow in New America’s Public Interest Technology initiative. Coleman was born and raised in Chicago, Ill. She holds a BA from Stanford University in international relations and comparative studies in race and ethnicity, where her thesis, Sentencing Pregnancy: a legal and humanistic analysis of options for incarcerated women, focused on the effects of mass incarceration on women and families. She is particularly interested in progressive sentencing reform, with a focus on underrepresented populations. Her research with the fellowship explored the efficacy of data sharing protocols as an aid to community organizations who work with the formerly-justice involved population of Washington, D.C. After the fellowship, Coleman will continue to be an advocate for improved reentry policy for justice-involved people.
