YLC Welcomes New Equal Justice Works Fellow

We are thrilled to welcome Chris Middleton to the YLC team as a staff attorney. Chris is a recipient of the Equal Justice Works 2023 class of Design-Your-Own Fellows which enables fellows to work towards addressing unmet civil legal needs in under-resourced communities throughout the country. While at YLC, Chris’s advocacy will be focused on reducing homelessness among child welfare and juvenile justice involved youth in western states through coalition building, community education, representation in administrative hearings, systemic advocacy, and litigation. Thank you Baker McKenzie and Salesforce for sponsoring Chris’s fellowship!

“Every young person deserves the support they need to grow into a healthy and happy adult. Consistent access to basic needs makes space for youth to imagine who they want to be. This project honors those who made space for me to dream.” -Chris Middleton
