Stephanie Horwitz is an Equal Justice Works Fellow on NCYL’s Juvenile Justice team, sponsored by the Morrison and Foerster Foundation. Her fellowship project centers on supporting students of color with disabilities who are facing pushout to, or are receiving an inferior education in, alternative education settings. Through this work, Horwitz will support NCYL’s efforts to end the school-to-prison pipeline and ensure equitable education opportunities for low-income youth of color. Horwitz is a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was a Senior Editor for the Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review and on the board of the Prison Legal Assistance Project. During law school, she clerked for Public Counsel’s Education Rights Project, externed at the Center for Law and Education, and represented asylum clients through her school’s Immigration and Refugee Clinic. Prior to attending law school, Horwitz was a special education teacher and administrator for eight years in low-income schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. She received her B.A. in Philosophy from Rutgers University.
