Bio

 Jennifer C. Braceras is a political columnist, Senior Fellow with the Independent Women’s Forum, and a former Commissioner of the United States Commission on Civil Rights (2001-2007).

A graduate of the Harvard Law School, Jennifer often writes about issues at the intersection of law, politics, and culture. Although her work covers a range of topics, she is particularly interested in civil rights, education, the courts, and the media. In addition, she writes widely on the things that bind us together as Americans: our shared history, our civic traditions and institutions, and our devotion to liberty.

Earlier in her career, Jennifer practiced labor and employment law with the Boston law firm Ropes & Gray. She has taught classes on civil rights and constitutional law at both Boston College Law School and Suffolk University Law School. From 2006-2011, she served as a Trustee of the University of Massachusetts, her alma mater.

Before becoming a lawyer, Jennifer worked as a Staff Assistant in the Office of Vice President Dan Quayle.

Jennifer lives in the Boston area with her husband and four children.
