Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law at NYU Law School
Executive Director
New York, New York, USA
He has dedicated his career to advancing racial justice and civil rights. Vincent joined the Center after serving as an Assistant Federal Public Defender with the Federal Defenders for the Southern District of New York since 2015. Prior to his time at the Federal Defenders, Vincent spent seven years at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF), where he was a Senior Counsel. While at LDF, he engaged in litigation and advocacy on matters of race and criminal justice, including the successful representation of death-sentenced prisoners across the American South and juveniles sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. He also led LDF’s advocacy efforts around race and policing, and was lead counsel in school desegregation and employment discrimination matters. Vincent's work today focuses on race and the exercise of discretion in the criminal justice system; the racial and social justice implications of technology; and disrupting the false narrative that connects blackness to criminality and dangerousness.
