Policy Fellow

Kelsey Grimes graduated from Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law in May 2017. She served on the Board of If/When/How all three years of law school, including one year as Co-President. She was a Law and Public Policy Scholar and a Stewart Cohen Scholar. She interned at Women Against Abuse, the National Abortion Federation, the ACLU of Pennsylvania, Community Legal Services, and the Center for Health and Gender Equity. During law school, she was a Research Assistant and focused on human rights and access to justice for low-income individuals. She also participated in Temple Law’s Justice Lab, where she and two other students worked with the Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project and City Officials to end the City’s practice of charging parents for the cost of their child’s incarceration. Before and during law school, Kelsey volunteered with Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania and supported women during their abortions. Kelsey’s hobbies include hanging out with her cat, lifting heavy objects, and pretending she is on the Great British Bake Off.
