Shoshana Brown

Shoshana Brown is a social worker who began working in the criminal defense office at The Bronx Defenders. Her objective is to tear the walls down brick by brick of every prison in the United States. That’s taken her to being both the director at a harm reduction agency, which often is the last step before long-term prison sentences, and now to schools, which is the beginning of the school-to-prison pipeline. She has been teaching full time for a total of nine years, six of those in the New York City system. She is a member of the Movement of Rank and File Teachers.
