RHLS welcomes summer interns Kaitlin Grant and Brittany Cross.

two summer interns

Kaitlin Grant is a law student at Case Western Reserve University. She started her Master of Public Health (MPH) program at Kent State University and shifted her public health thought process to implementing community health prevention. Now at Case Western Reserve University, she is pursuing her goal of working in public health law and has been able to wear both her public health and legal hats by assisting with housing issues and the Violence Against Women Act. In addition to working on a housing policy equity project, she is creating an Advocacy Tool for agencies that help populations made more vulnerable due to COVID 19.

Brittany L. Griffin is a rising 3L at Widener Commonwealth Law, where she is Vice-President of the Black Law Students Association. She is part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Summer Internship Program. The MLK Internship is an integral part of the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network’s goal to initiate new lawyers to the lifelong commitment of providing access to justice for all individuals. Before attending law school, she worked in public service in Miami as well as doing community outreach in New York City. She is interested in how RHLS bridges the gap between developers and communities to create affordable housing. She has already worked with RHLS attorneys on community benefits agreement projects as part of her work in legal transactions this summer.
