Justin D. Hodge

Justin Hodge is a clinical assistant professor of social work at the University of Michigan. He works to promote socially just policies through his engagement in governmental and political organizations. He was appointed by the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners to serve on the Community Action Board and Board of Health. He also serves as chair of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Community Advisory Board for Law Enforcement where he brings a social justice perspective to advising on policing.

Hodge was elected to serve the Washtenaw County community on the executive board of the Washtenaw County Democratic Party where he provides leadership on state level advocacy issues. Nationally, Hodge serves on the board of directors of the Congressional Research Institute for Social Work and Policy, which works to expand the participation of social workers in federal legislative and policy processes.

Hodge is dedicated to mental health services on both a policy and individual level.
