  • Allegra received her B.A. from Swarthmore College in 2014, where she majored in History and Political Science. Following graduation, she worked as the senior center coordinator for the Center on Children and Families at the Brookings Institution, a public policy think tank in Washington, DC. Allegra is interested in racial disparities in the criminal justice system, more specifically the impacts of incarceration for those "doing time on the outside." Her work seeks to examine how women form social networks - both online and in person - to mitigate the effects of the incarceration of their loved ones.
