Congratulations to Danny Murillo (Gardner Fellow Class of 2015) on being selected as a Soros Justice Fellow.  As a Soros Fellow, Danny will work to empower formerly incarcerated students by creating a network of people throughout California who have successfully made the transition from incarceration to higher education. This Fellowship will build on his work as a Gardner Fellow at both the Vera Institute of Justice and at the Rutgers University’s NJ-STEP program as well as his work in co-founding of the Underground Scholars Initiative, an organization dedicated to supporting students who have been personally impacted by incarceration as a student at UC Berkeley.
