Criminal Justice Reform Manager
Alyssa Stryker is DPA’s Criminal Justice Reform Manager. She is committed to ending the War on Drugs so that it can no longer be used as rhetorical cover for the criminalization of poor communities and communities of color.
Prior to joining DPA, Alyssa oversaw the casework portfolio at the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) in Vancouver, Canada. In this role, she worked to integrate community concerns about policing and the criminalization of poverty into the BCCLA's organization-wide policy development. Alyssa holds an MA in Human Geography from the University of British Columbia and a BA (Honors) from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, but has learned just as much from those outside academia as she has from those within it.
