Kaitlin Kall

Kaitlin Kall has been with the Vera Institute of Justice for five years. As a program associate, her work centers around jail population reduction, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), and extending victim services to underserved survivors of crime, particularly people who are or have been incarcerated. Kaitlin works extensively on the OVC-funded Underserved Resource Center, an ambitious initiative to increase the accessibility of victim services for historically overlooked and marginalized people, include those who have disabilities, are limited English proficient and have criminal justice system involvement. Kaitlin also serves as site coordinator for Spokane County, WA as part of the Safety and Justice Challenge, a nationwide campaign funded by the MacArthur Foundation to reduce racial disparities and the overuse of jail at the local level. She has also worked in Milwaukee, Tulsa, and Oklahoma Counties providing analysis of their jail populations and crafting strategies for safely reducing these populations. Prior to coming to Vera, she worked with gang-involved and other underserved young people. She is an active volunteer in men’s and women’s prisons in California. Kaitlin holds a BA with Honors from Wesleyan University.
