Kimberly Humphrey is Legislative Counsel for the ACLU of Maryland’s Education program. She drives policy change aimed at equity in education funding, working with state and city officials, parents, school administrators and local community leaders to ensure that every student has access to quality academic programs and enrichment opportunities. She also leads state and local discipline reform initiatives aimed at overhauling counterproductive policies and practices that disproportionately impact students of color and students with disabilities. Kimberly previously worked as a policy associate in the National ACLU Washington Legislative Office, where she supported efforts on disability rights, immigrants’ rights, criminal and juvenile justice. Prior to joining the ACLU, she worked as a paralegal. Her commitment to service through transforming public policy was sealed after serving as a legal intern on Capitol Hill with former Congressman James (“Jim”) Moran in 2008. She is a proud graduate of Spelman College, and received her J.D. and Certificate in Law and Public Policy from the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University.
