As Executive Director of Voices for Children in Nebraska, I would like to extend my formal welcome to Juliet Summers, our new Policy Coordinator for Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice.
Juliet will be responsible for overseeing our policy research, analysis, and advocacy efforts on behalf of children involved in Nebraska’s child welfare and juvenile court systems.
Juliet brings strong credentials to this position, and will be a robust advocate for children and families.
Prior to joining Voices for Children, Juliet served as a public defender, representing children and families in the juvenile court of Douglas County. Before that, she taught 2nd grade on the Rosebud Indian Reservation through Teach for America.
Juliet holds a law degree from the University of Chicago and a B.A. in political science from Duke University and is a member of the Nebraska bar.
Over the last few years, Voices for Children has achieved significant victories for children and families in the areas of juvenile justice and child welfare.
With Juliet on our staff, we are well positioned to continue building on our success and ensure pathways to opportunity for all children and families.
Welcome again to Juliet. We are excited to have you on the Voices for Children team.
