Sri Thakkilapati

ACLU of Ohio
Policy Researcher
Sri Devi Thakkilapati is a sociologist and policy researcher at the ACLU of Ohio. Sri strives to advance social policies that support the vulnerable among us and dismantle those that enrich the powerful. Her research at the ACLU focuses on analyzing how racial and economic inequities are perpetuated by Ohio’s mayor’s court system.
Before coming to the ACLU, Sri completed a doctorate in sociology at the Ohio State University. This work taught her that something can be simultaneously grueling and fun. In addition to her academic work, Sri has developed policy with non-profit organizations in the US and in India that promote gender, race, and class equity. Sri’s academic training and sociological perspective inform her research and advocacy efforts.
