Destiny Carter works collaboratively with the Arnold Ventures’ policy and research teams to develop and execute legislative advocacy campaigns to advance criminal justice policy priorities in the areas of Policing, Pretrial Justice, Community Supervision, Prisons, Reintegration, and Fines & Fees.

Prior to joining the Advocacy team, Destiny served as a criminal justice manager on AV’s Pretrial Team, supporting policy and research grants for the Prosecution and Public Defense portfolios. Before joining Arnold Ventures, Destiny worked as a policy specialist for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, a nonprofit focused on ending homelessness through community organizing, advocacy, and public policy. As a member of the Restoring Rights and Opportunities Coalition of Illinois, Destiny focused on the intersection of homelessness and the criminal justice system, supporting the enactment of state legislation to increase access to housing and employment opportunities for formerly incarcerated Illinoisans. Destiny was also a U.S. prevention programs assistant at Love 146, a nonprofit international human rights organization that advocates for the end of child trafficking and exploitation and held an externship at the Federal Public Defender’s Office in Houston.

Destiny holds a J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law and received a dual bachelor’s degree in political science and American culture from the University of Michigan.
