Welcoming New Staff at GJP!

GJP is growing! This year, we are excited to welcome several new staff members who will help GJP expand our capacity to lower the number of Georgians under correctional control and reduce barriers to reentry. Learn more about them and our work below. 

Alicia Gutierrez, Corporate Programs Manager 


Work/Education Background

I went to Georgia State University where I got my bachelor’s degree in business administration and my master’s degree in public administration and Criminal Justice. I spent the last 4 and half years working at the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta as the Donations Manager and Volunteer Lead.

Why GJP?

Ever since 2015, when I learned about my first wrongful conviction case, I became obsessed with learning more and continued to find all sorts of injustices in the criminal justice system. 

With time, I begin to have a desire to play my part in helping those affected by the system through my skills in development. GJP allowed me to do just that.  I want to encourage others to use their own skills to help break down barriers. 

What do you do in your free time?

I practically grew up in Atlanta and I just love the creativity and opportunities that this city has for all walks of life. My favorite place in the city is Ponce City Market. It’s such a unique place to shop, eat and hang out with friends. Outside of work I also enjoy working out and building my podcast with my best friend.

Work/Education Background

I have over 20 years of experience in nonprofits, with a focus on advocacy for disadvantaged families. I am also a graduate of Clark Atlanta University. 

Why GJP? 

I chose GJP because I am passionate about sharing my gifts to help others. I also believe that with support and the reduction of barriers, individuals can achieve their goals, and we can make a positive impact in our community by helping future generations. 

What do you do in your free time? 

Outside of work, I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc and I volunteer with various youth groups. I also love to play board games with my family (Monopoly is my favorite) and escaping to the water (pools or beaches) any chance I get.
