Kelly manages the ACLU of Oregon's litigation strategy and legal advocacy, in close partnership with staff, partner organizations, volunteers, and the Oregon legal community. It is critical to her role to ensure that the ACLU of Oregon deepens its understanding of and ability to transform the white supremacist roots of legal culture and systems so that everyone can access justice. As one might expect from a sporty white lesbian tomboi, Kelly loves flannel and forests. When she needs rest and rejuvenation, Kelly can be found taking naps, wandering in the woods, drinking wine by a bonfire, watching documentaries, or at the climbing gym.
