    Christopher M. Jones
    Advocate

    Director of Florida Legal Services, an impact advocacy organization that drives high impact work with community lawyering and a race equity lens. My work includes advocacy and support for communities including the institutionalized, immigrants & migrants. Our litigation and our policy advocacy often reminds us of the need to better communicate with experts and emerging thought in many academic areas. Too often we lack credentialed, peer-reviewed confirmation of what our clients and their communities live and know. SAM offers an exciting model for establishing those connections. I am fortunate to work in an organization with no restrictions and, I suppose, unfortunate to live in a time and place where all these topic areas translate in human terms into exploitation, misery, isolation, and a fiercely powerful desire for radical change.

    Claudia Johnson
    Advocate

    With a background on quantitative public policy and analysis and health care management--Claudia brings to online form projects and technology an empirical management perspective. With scarce resources in the realm of civil legal aid, she believes it is important to allocate resources based on real metrics, and verified best practices. She has supported multiple evaluations of document assembly projects in the area of online forms and technology, and also legal services delivery, including helpline project evaluations. Claudia is the Program Manager at LawHelp Interactive, and as such works to support over 500 organizations creating and promoting online forms to close the Justice Gap. In this capacity she works to identify and share best practices, and promotes sharing and collaboration between courts and legal aid, as well as by designing technology platforms and trainings that promote collaboration.
