In this role, he oversees the project’s research and policy portfolios, including technical assistance to states, policy analysis and development, and public and policymaker education on justice issues.
Before joining Pew, Horowitz was a social science analyst with the U.S. Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice. He was also a legislative fellow in the U.S. House of Representatives and a counselor and teacher with Eckerd Youth Alternatives.
