DeVont'e Arrington, MSW
Arrington is passionate about reforming the flawed criminal justice system and has gravitated towards projects, volunteer, and research opportunities which explore the interconnected nature of social work and the justice system. Arrington is proud to represent the inaugural class of IJRD Post-Master’s Fellows and he is indebted to the members of his community who helped him to succeed and achieve this goal. Arrington aspires to work closely with justice-involved adults - a marginalized and largely forgotten population - to construct positive change and a more inclusive future.
Arrington holds Bachelor and Master of Social Work degrees both from Eastern Carolina University, his familial alma mater.
