Two Alumnae Hope to Protect People's Rights with OSI Fellowships

In partnership with Civil Justice, Inc., Catherine Gonzalez '13 will address and alleviate the impact of predatory student loan practices for Baltimore city residents. Gonzalez will begin her outreach in Baltimore City to let students know about her student debt assistance project. She will offer legal advice and education.
 

Zina Makar '14 will work in partnership with the Baltimore City Office of the Public Defender to establish Pipeline to Habeas—an initiative that ensures that indigent defendants denied due process at the time of their bail hearings have equal access to justice.
 


The Open Society Institute-Baltimore launched the Community Fellowships program in 1998. It is now a corps of social innovators over 140 strong. The program seeks dynamic activists and social entrepreneurs interested in implementing projects that address problems in underserved communities in Baltimore City.
