Marcus Jackson joined the ACLU of Kentucky in July 2020. He is a Kentucky native and long-time advocate for criminal justice reform. Marcus’s passion for justice reform stems from personal experiences with the criminal legal system and seeing firsthand the disparities within the current system. Marcus believes in a common-sense approach to sentencing and programs to support people leaving incarceration so they can successfully rejoin their communities.
Before joining the ACLU of Kentucky, Marcus was the expungement paralegal for the Louisville Urban League/Reily Reentry Expungement Clinics, which assist hundreds of people in navigating obstacles to housing and employment due to criminal convictions.
Marcus lives in Frankfort with his wife Christie and looks forward to a time when his reformation efforts are no longer needed in this world.
