Elizabeth Allen

Elizabeth Allen is an editorial assistant on Vera’s communications team. Elizabeth graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 2022, where she studied history and education. As an undergraduate, much of her scholarship grappled with themes of historical revisionism, mythology, and collective memory, particularly in K-12 social studies curricula. Her studies, internships, and praxis experiences also illuminated the connections between education access, poverty, and carceral system interaction. In her role at Vera, Elizabeth supports the editorial team’s efforts to combat pervasive fallacies about incarceration and to bring to light other criminal legal system issues.
