Kaitlin Kall

Kaitlin Kall joined the Vera Institute of Justice in 2012. As senior program associate, her work centered 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 worked extensively on the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC)-funded Underserved Resource Center, an ambitious initiative to increase the accessibility of victim services for historically overlooked and marginalized people, including those who have disabilities, are limited English proficient, and those who have had criminal justice system involvement. Kaitlin also served as site coordinator for Spokane County, WA as part of the Safety and Justice Challenge, a nationwide campaign to reduce racial disparities and the over-use of jail at the local level. She also worked in Milwaukee, Tulsa, and Oklahoma Counties providing analyses of their jail populations and crafting strategies for safely reducing unnecessary incarceration. Prior to coming to Vera, Kaitlin worked with youth in underserved communities, including young people in juvenile confinement settings. She is an active volunteer in men’s and women’s prisons in California through the Freedom to Choose Project. Kaitlin holds a BA with Honors from Wesleyan University.
