Claire was trained as a Victim / Offender Education Group (VOEG) facilitator with IPP in 2014 and has since worked in both the VOEG and Next Step programs at San Quentin State Prison. Her path to restorative justice work is informed by a long history of social and racial justice organizing and education. Claire is committed to dismantling systems of oppression by acting as a stakeholder and political companion in coalitional organizing efforts. Claire facilitates anti-racism trainings for white people who are working toward greater racial justice through examining whiteness, privilege and structural racism. She has just completed a yearlong fellowship working on a Disability Justice initiative with California Institute for Integral Studies’ Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Claire is passionate about grounding social justice work in methodologies for healing and continues to explore the role of somatics, mindfulness, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and 12-step modalities as tools for social change. Claire holds a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the California Institute for Integral Studies.
