Zachary Norris headshotZachary Norris is the Executive Director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, former director of our Books Not Bars campaign, a Harvard graduate, and an NYU-educated attorney. Prior to rejoining the Ella Baker Center, Zachary founded and co-directed Justice for Families, a national alliance of family-driven organizations working to end our nation’s youth incarceration epidemic. During the seven years he led the Books Not Bars campaign, it succeeded in building California’s first statewide network for families of incarcerated youth, led the effort to close five youth prisons, and defeated Prop 6—a destructive and ineffective 2008 criminal justice ballot measure.
