World Resources Initiative (WRI)

Washington, DC

Lisa Gluckstein (HLS ’18) plans to use her J.D. to promote inclusive and sustainable urban development. She has worked at the intersection of urban development, local government, and human rights through a variety of organizations, including the Tenant Advocacy Project, the California Office of the Attorney General, and the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office. Lisa founded the HLS Urbanists and served on the board of the New England chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism. She also studied human rights at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City in the fall of 2017. Lisa will work with the World Resources Institute (WRI) to use Mexico City’s new City Constitution, in conjunction with domestic and international human rights law, to advocate for the more equitable allocation of government services and infrastructure across Mexico City’s sixteen delegations.
