Elaine Hennig is the Harris County Project Associate at the Texas Center for Justice and Equity. She first joined TCJE as an undergraduate student, engaging in research projects on school policing and the cash bail system in Harris County. In her hometown of Dallas, Texas, Elaine was trained in the arts as a director, stage manager, and playwright at an arts magnet high school. Paired with her community service engagement, her interest in storytelling led her to develop a passion for analyzing society, advocating for social justice, and elevating marginalized voices. Elaine received her Bachelor of Arts from Rice University, where she studied Sociology with a minor in Politics, Law, and Social Thought and took a particular academic interest in the social impact of the justice system.
