Mister Ringler (She/Her)DC Policing Project Manager
Mister’s goal is to leverage Civil Rights Corps’ resources to challenge police violence and support on-the-ground abolitionist organizing in DC. She is focused on building shared power among survivors, legal advocates, and organizers while holding police accountable for harm – particularly the everyday abuses that go unchallenged – and diverting city funds to marginalized communities.
Previously, Mister worked with public defender offices to track and organize information about police violence using databases while at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. She also built grassroots organizing power at Community Change, advanced campaigns to end money bail at the Pretrial Justice Institute, and investigated for the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia. Mister also has experience in local and national No New Jails campaigns, facilitating alternatives to calling the police workshops to change neighbors’ narratives about safety, joined Showing Up for Racial Justice to mobilize white people into intersectional alliances, and has organized for the equitable redistribution of wealth through Resource Generation.
Outside of work, Mister can be found learning how to use new power tools, building bike ramps for her friends, and coaxing her cat outside. Mister has a B.A. in philosophy from Tufts University
