Gabrielle Dresner, MSW is the policy associate for the Michigan Center for Youth Justice. Creating a fair, evidence-based, and community-driven justice system for kids is her mission. At MCYJ, she has been successful in this venture by advocating for the passage of legislation to streamline expungements for juvenile records; pushing for funding for community-based alternatives to incarceration; and aiding in the development of an anti-racist justice model in Kalamazoo County, Michigan.


Outside of her paid work, Gabrielle spends her time running, playing with her dog, or working on her latest embroidery project.
