Summer Legal Intern
Shaugnassy Williams-Bryant

Shaugnassy Williams-Bryant received her bachelor's degree in Criminology from Florida State University. During her time studying, Shaugnassy became engulfed in finding a solution for the inequality that existed in the criminal justice system.

Shaugnassy found that income, education, and race were key factors that often led to the level of justice one would be afforded. She committed to working in the communities that needed help the most to mentor and tutor children who could not afford it.


Shaugnassy served as a victim advocate, Guardian ad Litem, and did extensive work mentoring and tutoring elementary students in low income neighborhoods. Shaugnassy was deeply moved by the difference in books, laptops, cleanliness, and ultimately education found between; public schools found in low income neighborhoods, and those found in affluent neighborhoods. Her education, commitment to service, and experience curating solutions based on the needs of the customer led her to Civil Rights. Shaugnassy is devoted to advocating for equality in education, employment, and constitutional rights. 


In her free time, Shaugnassy enjoys trying new foods, cooking and going to the movies. One of Shaugnassy’s favorite things to do is spend quality time with friends and family.
