Molly Linhorst joined the ACLU-NJ as a 2019-2020 Justice Catalyst Fellow to challenge egregious immigration detention conditions at county-run facilities and to mitigate the financial interests that perpetuate them.
Molly received her bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University, where she studied international relations and political science, and her law degree from Harvard Law School. While in law school, Molly worked in two law clinics - the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic, and the Crimmigration Clinic - and interned at African Services Committee and the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project. She served as the co-director of the Harvard Immigration Project’s Removal Defense Project and as Professor Deborah Anker’s senior research assistant, editing the 2019 edition of "Law of Asylum in the United States." Molly became a card-carrying member of the ACLU in high school.
