Sydney Groll is a full-time paralegal at the Support Center for Child Advocates and a part-time evening law student at Rutgers Law School in Camden, New Jersey. She has a background in working with various nonprofits and youth-serving organizations in Minneapolis, Baltimore, Camden, and Philadelphia. After graduating from Loyola University Maryland in 2016 with a B.A. in Psychology and Spanish, she completed a year of service with AmeriCorps, where she worked with youth involved in the juvenile justice system through The Choice Program. That same year she also became involved with the Alternatives to Violence Project, which involves facilitation and participation in anti-violence workshops within prisons and communities. Through her work in the juvenile justice, child welfare, and prison systems, she has become acutely aware of the injustices and racism that those in these systems encounter, and has dedicated herself to the fight for justice for those facing these systems and beyond.
