Marian Wright Edelman once said that "You just need to be a flea against injustice. Enough committed fleas biting strategically can make even the biggest dog uncomfortable and transform even the biggest nation." Tierra Langley wants to be a flea biting for justice, especially for our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. To accomplish this, she attended Johns Hopkins University and majored in Sociology and Africana Studies, with a background in Public Health and a focus on African Americans. Tierra chose the Children’s Defense Fund because its civil rights advocacy work is aligned with her own ideology. She wanted to work in a place where everyone is about the business of effecting positive change and demanding justice. She currently works within Policy as a Juvenile Justice Intern, and feels blessed because of the work that she is able to participate in every day. Her experience with Juvenile Justice at CDF has solidified not only a desire to be an advocate and activist for children, but also to pursue a law degree and one day represent youth in a court of law.
