Fellow Since 2014
This description of Raj Jayadev's work was prepared when Raj Jayadev was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Raj is growing a national movement to advance the concept of “participatory defense” whereby families and communities most impacted by mass incarceration in the United States can effectively participate in the criminal defense process and transform the landscape of power in the court system.
