America’s criminal justice system should keep communities safe, treat people fairly, and use fiscal resources wisely. ACLU-TN advocates for a criminal justice system that fosters public safety by reducing mass incarceration and ensuring police accountability. We work to ensure that constitutional protections are afforded to everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity or income. We also confront discriminatory or unfair police practices and challenge the broken death penalty system.
Yarbrough will lead the organization’s legal work by building ACLU-TN’s impact litigation docket to advance ACLU-TN’s strategic priorities, supervising litigation teams, collaborating with state and national partners, responding to threats against civil liberties, and more.
