Jaden Lajyll Zwick proudly hails from Federal Way, Washington where she enjoyed foundational student leadership development and an International Baccalaureate education. At the same time, her low-income public schools were introductory sites of racialized discipline and policing. Jaden is deeply committed to ending violence against youth in schools and improving the quality of education for Black students. To that end, Jaden has spent her time in law school shadowing movement lawyers at the intersections of juvenile justice and educational equity. She has also spent the last two years working as a graduate student researcher at the UCLA Labor Center supporting Black worker initiatives. This year, Jaden will be graduating, sitting for the California Bar Exam, and continuing her work in Los Angeles to see youth justice initiatives and Black student achievement efforts realized. Jaden is a 3L at UCLA School of Law, specializing in Critical Race Studies and participating in the Epstein Public Interest Law and Policy Program.
