Adrianna Duchene became committed to justice reform work when she learned how unjust the juvenile justice system is after her justice-involvement, during her undergraduate studies and through interning with the local detention center.
She continued her work to reform the youth justice system through an internship with the Michigan Center for Youth Justice, and recently co-authored their report “Minors Facing Major Debt: The Immense Burden of Court Fees on Macomb County Youth and Families”.
Adrianna has expanded into reforming the adult system through her work with Nation Outside, and the Michigan Collaborative to End Mass Incarceration, where she has contributed since 2019. Adrianna earned her Master of Social Work degree from Boston University and her B.A. in Social Work from Eastern Michigan University.
