Jamitra joined ArchCity Defenders in September 2021 as an Equal Justice Works Fellow and she is sponsored by an anonymous donor. As an EJW Fellow, Jamitra’s project focused on mitigating the collateral consequences of incarceration for justice-involved women in Missouri by providing legal representation, reentry services, and policy advocacy. Jamitra interned with ACD in the spring and fall of 2020 while in law school and felt aligned with ACD’s mission and values. She became a Staff Attorney on the Civil Rights Litigation team in 2023.
