Right On Crime, a national criminal justice campaign of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, welcomes Rachel A. Wright as National Policy Director. With nearly a decade of prosecutorial and policy experience, Rachel brings a passionate expertise and perspective to the job.

Prior to joining Right On Crime, Rachel served as an Assistant Solicitor General at the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General, where she focused on criminal appeals and provided invaluable insight into illicit drug policy and crime issues, including working with the Kentucky Opioid Abatement Advisory Commission.

In Washington, D.C., Rachel spent five years as counsel to Senator Chuck Grassley on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee advising him on legislation and committee hearings related to illicit drug policy and criminal justice reform. As staff to the author of the First Step Act, she played a key role in the law’s implementation and advised Senator Grassley and other members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on other significant criminal justice bills.

“During our work on the First Step Act, I witnessed Rachel’s deep understanding of criminal justice reform and her ability to navigate complex legislative processes,” said Right On Crime Executive Director and former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman. “I’m confident Rachel will be a thought leader, innovator, and valuable asset to the Right On Crime team.”

“Right On Crime has a renowned reputation and effective advocacy for conservative criminal justice throughout the nation,” said Rachel Wright, Right On Crime’s National Policy Director. “I’m excited to join such a great organization, and I’m committed to advancing evidence-based criminal justice policies that promote fairness, accountability, and public safety.”
