Meghan Stanford

Social Worker

Meghan was born in New Orleans and grew up in L. A. where she attended UCLA to receive a BA in Psychology with a double-minor in Gender Studies and Disability Studies. While earning her Bachelor’s degree, she worked in the Disability Rights field. She provided early intervention for toddlers with intellectual and development disabilities, and worked with educational psychologists at UCLA to ensure that students with disabilities were provided accommodations for equal access to education. After living in India and traveling throughout Latin America, she decided to focus more broadly on Human Rights. She came back to New Orleans to receive her Masters in Social Work with an emphasis on Disaster and Collective Trauma. In her spare time, she teaches ESL for an immigration services program, reads books, and makes art. Her work at LCCR feeds her passion for the human rights of children and families and changing unjust systems.
