Alexis manages our projects supporting the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ) on two critical efforts for New York City: the successful implementation of Raise the Age legislation and the Justice Implementation Task Force advancing the City’s plan for a smaller, safer, fairer jail system. She also manages our work with the E Pluribus Unum Fund, an ambitious new initiative developed by former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu to address issues of race, equity, economic opportunity, and violence in the U.S. South.
Additionally, Alexis has supported the design of multiple complex grant-making initiatives at Bennett Midland, including What Works Cities—a national initiative from Bloomberg Philanthropies to help 100 mid-sized American cities accelerate their use of data and evidence to engage citizens, make government more effective, and improve people’s lives. She also helped create the New York City Digital Playbook, synthesizing ideas from residents, community leaders, and digital experts to develop new user-centered City policies for digital service delivery.
Prior to joining Bennett Midland, Alexis worked as a strategic planning intern for the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Alexis holds a BA with honors in Social Studies from Harvard.
