Welcome to Summer at CCLI

CCLI is pleased to welcome two new faces to its summer staff.  Dakota (Cody) Erickson has joined us, substituting in for Josephine Nguyen as CCLI’s law clerk.  Thank you Josephine for all your outstanding work, and welcome Cody!  Cody will spend his summer supporting CCLI advocates Inti Martinez-Aleman and Elizabeth Neyens in their law practices.

We are also very pleased to have the opportunity to host a Macalester student through the MacNest program, a summer internship program that brings students interested in social justice together with nonprofit and for-profit startups in the Twin Cities.  Operations intern Albert Lee has joined us to learn more about the justice gap, to help us understand the specific needs of Minnesotans who face barriers to accessing justice, and to work with us to develop processes that will enable our advocates to connect with modest-means clients who need their services.  Welcome Albert!

Cody and Albert each bring a distinctive perspective to CCLI’s mission, and I’ve invited them to post to our blog over the summer.  No post would be complete without the usual disclaimer: their views are not necessarily the views of CCLI.  We’re hoping to update the blog every Friday for your weekend-reading pleasure.  Happy summer and enjoy!
