Jasmine Lewis is a public affairs professional from the Chicago area with a background in public policy and social advocacy. Jasmine obtained her B.A. in Political Science & Public Administration from the University of Miami and most recently, her MSc in Gender, Development and Globalisation from The London School of Economics and Political Science. She is passionate about human rights, criminal justice, and gender & racial equity.
Much of her professional career has been spent working in human rights non-profit organizations domestically and abroad, including Human Rights Watch in the US & Sonke Gender Justice in Cape Town, South Africa. She has also spent much of her time working in public policy. Through experiences with local organizations in Miami and Seattle, she gained familiarity with policy research & advocacy in areas such as reproductive health, criminal justice, and community investment. Before coming to the CBCF, Jasmine worked as a Policy & Advocacy intern at the ACLU of Washington on the Campaign for Smart Justice. Her work there primarily consisted of combatting policies that exacerbated mass incarceration, as well as supporting the state’s efforts to enfranchise those within the local criminal legal system. While there, she also worked with the Technology & Liberties team to support equitable regulations of technology.
Jasmine’s long-term career ambitions include advocating for human rights within the international legal and policy landscape. She intends on using the skills learned throughout the program to promote rights-based, intersectional analyses of racial and gender equity in the technology industry.
