Staff Attorney [YEAR:S Program]
Chelsea, a restorative facilitator and youth advocate attorney, is the Restorative Practices Lead for the Youth: Education, Advocacy & Restorative Services program at the Legal Rights Center. Having previous experience in community-based restorative practices, Chelsea was drawn to the LRC because of its commitment to supporting young people and their communities through Family Group Conferencing in addition to its holistic juvenile defense program.
Before she was an attorney, Chelsea worked as a high school English and Reading teacher in New Orleans, where she was humbled by the incredible resiliency of her students. It was there that Chelsea knew she wanted to dedicate her work to supporting the empowerment of young people.
