ACLU of Delaware looking for Smart Justice Ambassadors

DELAWARE – The ACLU of Delaware is looking for people who have been impacted by the criminal justice system to be what they’re calling smart justice ambassadors who can make a change in the state.

The ambassadors would learn skills to become advocates for topics in the state like policing, probation, and sentencing. They would advocate for legislation and work alongside lawmakers to push for change statewide.

Leaders at the ACLU say they’re looking for people who have been personally impacted by the system because they know how difficult it can be.

“I just firmly believe people impacted by the legal system have the best knowledge, understanding, and potential solutions for positively impacting changes,” Haneef Salaam, with the ACLU of Delaware, said.

We’re told ambassadors will go through a paid training on October 2d and 3rd with expenses covered and a stipend when the training is done. Applications can be found on the ACLU of Delaware’s website.
