Megan Buchanan

Megan joined the CFSY team in September of 2016 after graduating from American University. As one of the CFSY’s program assistants, Megan worked to engage with volunteers and donors, plan and execute events, and help further the CFSY’s advocacy efforts. As the CFSY’s outreach coordinator, Megan now focuses on engaging with individuals who have been directly impacted by the issue of extreme sentencing for children.

Although she majored in International Studies in college, her concentrations in Identity, Race, Gender, and Culture as well as in Human Rights allowed her to explore some of the very serious human rights violations happening right here in the United States. Megan became passionate about criminal justice reform and fighting for those who are disenfranchised by the current system.

Before coming to the CFSY, Megan worked as a development intern at the DC Center for the LGBT Community and more recently at the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.

In her free time, Megan enjoys dancing, rollerblading, or spending time with friends. She also has a passion for cheese.
