Jeremy Reichenberger is a paralegal at Baillon Thome Jozwiak & Wanta LLP. He began working with the firm in 2013 after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a self-designed degree entitled Activism & Aesthetics: Community Organizing & Art for Social Change. This included a semester in an immersive, community-based social justice program, “Inequality in America: Policy, Community, and the Politics of Empowerment,” through the Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs (HECUA). There, Jeremy studied the growing gap between rich and poor in the United States and gained hands-on experience working with community leaders to affect social justice changes throughout the Twin Cities.
Jeremy remains active in local politics and has worked on numerous political campaigns, including Minnesotans United for All Families—the first campaign in the nation to defeat a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in a state's constitution. Jeremy also served as President of the College Democrats at the University of Minnesota, board member of Young Progressive Majority Minnesota, and was a member of Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges' Transition Committee.
In his spare time, Jeremy is a committed athlete, competing internationally for Team USA as an age group duathlete, as well as running nationally for the Mill City Running race team, the November Project Minneapolis and Team Nuun.
