Michael Santos (JD 2013) has been named chair of the American Bar Association Commission on Homelessness and Poverty. Santos, associate director of U.S. poverty policy at RESULTS, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit lobbying organization, plans to use his new role to educate the legal community and the public about the legal problems of people experiencing homelessness and poverty.

“During my three-year tenure, I hope to leverage my work with the Commission to find creative legal solutions to end and prevent homelessness and poverty on the national, state and local levels, particularly addressing the growing trend of criminalization and achieving economic justice for low- to no income households,” Santos says.
