Political Science's Megan Ming Francis has been named one of 12 grant-supported “Freedom Scholars” in a new initiative by the Marguerite Casey Foundation and Group Health Foundation.

“This grant will allow me to expand the organizing work I do with incarcerated populations and will provide necessary seed funding to launch another project focused on detailing what wealthy institutions owe to communities of color,” she said. “I am committed to conducting research on past injustices and linking that information to public conversations, movement building, and policy proposals centered on repair.”
