Lab Manager, Innovation for Justice

Mackenzie Pish, J.D., is the i4J Lab Manager and is active in advancing i4J research, writing, and program development.

Mackenzie also leads much of i4J’s housing-related work; she runs i4J’s tenant education program and created the i4J Cost of Eviction Calculator, a free, online tool designed to help users estimate the community cost of some of the major downstream effects of eviction-related homelessness and promote systemic shifts toward eviction prevention. Pish received her J.D. from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law in 2020, where she was a Distinguished Scholar, an editor on the Arizona Law Review, and recipient of the S. Thomas Chandler Public Service Award. She received her B.A. in Political Science, summa cum laude, from the State University of New York, Cortland.
