Current Fellow 2017-2018

Alexis Erkert Depp, Northeastern University School of Law

Southeast Louisiana Legal Services

Alexis will work at Southeast Louisiana Legal Services (SLLS) and partner with Voice of the Experienced (VOTE), a community organization led by and serving formerly incarcerated people. Alexis will represent formerly incarcerated people and their families in fighting evictions and loss of housing subsidies based on a criminal record; develop know-your-rights and pro se materials; and advocate with housing providers to change their screening policies.

Prior to law school, Alexis worked for six years as a policy analyst and human rights advocate in Haiti, supporting Haitian community organizations and social movements. After the 2010 earthquake decimated her neighborhood, she coordinated Under Tents, an international housing rights campaign to support displacement camp residents advocating for affordable housing.
