Today, the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice welcomes Scott Novakowski as Associate Counsel and the inaugural Judge Dickinson R. Debevoise Social Justice Legal Advocacy Fellow.

“Scott joins the Institute at a critical moment when our work in building an inclusive democracy, ensuring economic justice, and advocating for transformative criminal justice reform couldn’t be more important,” said Ryan P. Haygood, Institute President and CEO. “We are clear here at the Institute that the solutions to the greatest social justice challenges of our time will come from the ground up in our cities. We are honored to have Scott join our team to help fight for the solutions that Judge Debevoise dedicated his career to achieving.”
