CANDICE DUNDY (JD, MPP), EQUAL JUSTICE WORKS FELLOW

Candice Dundy is beginning her legal career with Legal Counsel for Youth and Children as an Equal Justice Works Fellow, sponsored by Greg and Val Gorder, the Raikes Foundation. Her project aims to reduce the number of youth of color experiencing homelessness in King County through providing direct services, and building partnerships with organizations to connect and holistically serve their needs, ranging from immediate safety concerns to alleviating systemic obstacles to employment and education.  

Candice recently graduated from Loyola University Chicago, concurrently earning a law degree and a Master’s in Public Policy. At Loyola, Candice was a recipient of the Civitas ChildLaw Fellowship, and represented children in the Child Law Clinic in child protection cases, school discipline hearings, and domestic relations cases.  She also coordinated a legal education program for juvenile residents of the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center.  While in law school, Candice interned at the Shriver Center on Poverty Law, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice. 

In her spare time, Candice enjoys cooking, baking, and attending concerts.

Many thanks to the Raikes Foundation, Greg and Val Gorder, and YouthCare for making this opportunity possible. YouthCare is providing Candice office space at their University District Youth Center.
