Speaker Bios

Dr. Danielle McDonald has been teaching criminal justice at Northern Kentucky University since 2008. Her courses examine how people experience the criminal justice system differently based upon their race, class, and gender and explore what can be done to address these inequities. In 2017, she published a textbook titled Race, Class, Gender and Criminal Justice: Examining Barriers to Justice. A second edition of this textbook with coauthor Cherie Dawson-Edwards will be available in 2021. In the classroom, Dr. McDonald utilizes service learning and student philanthropy pedagogy to encourage students to connect what they are learning in the classroom with what they are observing and/or experiencing in the community. 

David A. Singleton is an attorney and Executive Director of the Ohio Justice and Policy Center (OJPC). The OJPC is a non-partisan, nonprofit, public interest law office based in Cincinnati whose purpose is to reform Ohio’s justice system.
