LaShunda Hill is FAMM’s New Director of Federal Legislative Affairs

WASHINGTON – FAMM President Kevin Ring announced that LaShunda Hill started today as the organization’s new Director of Federal Legislative Affairs. She takes the federal legislative portfolio from Molly Gill, who last year became FAMM’s Vice President of Policy and now manages FAMM’s state and federal legislative work.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have LaShunda join FAMM’s team,” said Ring. “She has valuable justice reform advocacy experience and is committed to working with lawmakers from across the ideological spectrum to advance smart sentencing and prison reforms.”

Hill said, “I am thrilled to join FAMM, an organization that is committed to advancing sound sentencing and prison polices while raising up the voices and experiences of those most directly impacted. I look forward to the work ahead.”

Prior to joining FAMM, Hill led state juvenile justice reform initiatives at the Pew Charitable Trusts. She also managed sentencing reform efforts for the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth (CFSY), where she advocated for the abolition of juvenile life without parole and other extreme sentences for youth. During her tenure at both CFSY and Pew, Hill worked with policymakers, judges, prosecutors, law enforcement, practitioners, and directly impacted communities to craft policy, build consensus and create diverse coalitions in support of bipartisan sentencing and juvenile justice legislative reforms.

Hill began her career serving her community as an in-home therapist for vulnerable youth and families involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems in her hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

FAMM is a nonpartisan, national advocacy organization that promotes fair and effective criminal justice reforms to make our communities safe. Founded in 1991, FAMM promotes change by raising the voices of families and individuals who are directly affected by counterproductive sentencing and prison policies.
