Claire Chevrier is Policy Counsel at the ACLU of Ohio where she is responsible for leading their statewide advocacy on bail reform. Before joining the ACLU of Ohio, Claire worked for a nonprofit in Washington, D.C. where she represented youth with special education needs who were in the juvenile and/or criminal justice systems. Working in the D.C.-Maryland-Virginia area provided Claire with the frustrating experience of navigating different pretrial systems. Washington, D.C. has eliminated cash bail, while Maryland and Virginia still heavily rely on it. Depending on where clients were arrested, they’d either likely go home to their families, or suffer in jail for weeks if not months. Claire is dedicated to bringing bail reform to Ohio and tearing down its unconstitutional wealth-based detention system. Claire is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center.
