ACLU Criminal Law Reform Project


Kevin Chen is a paralegal at the ACLU’s Criminal Law Reform Project. Driven by his personal experiences navigating the justice system for his family, Kevin is committed to advocating for a more equitable approach to justice that prioritizes care over exploitation. His past experiences include working as an Urban Fellow with the Yale Prison Education Initiative, where he facilitated educational programming for incarcerated individuals, interning at The Bronx Defenders and the Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization, where he provided legal support to overpoliced communities, and working as a summer research assistant for Yale Law Professors Miriam Gohara and Marisol Orihuela. When he is not working at the ACLU, Kevin can be found managing (and eating at) his family’s food delivery business in his hometown of Long Island. Kevin graduated cum laude from Yale University with a degree in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration.
