Carly Wais is a passionate and creative advocate from Baltimore, MD who ventured out to California to earn a B.S. in Earth Systems from Stanford University. After a transformative summer with the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project in San Francisco, they returned to Baltimore to work on housing justice efforts locally. Carly completed an M.A. in Social Design at Maryland Institute College of Art, applying a collaborative, human-centered design process to issues Baltimore residents face within reentry, health care, food access, and the LGBTQ community. As part of their thesis, Carly was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to co-design with returning citizens through the City Accelerator grant. As a Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Fellow, Carly continued this work creating new platforms for people coming back to Baltimore from prison and jail to connect with resources and each other. Carly is a proud member of the MD grassroots advocacy organization Out For Justice, where returning citizens lead the way in reforming policies that impact them. Carly is so excited to be working for improved sexual healthcare for systems-involved women and girls in MD as Coordinator of the Reproductive Justice Inside coalition.
