Who we are


Clark Sheldon, Parallel Justice Specialist at The Burlington Police Department, is a pretty down-to-earth guy.  Since graduating from The University of Vermont in 2002 with a BA in Women's and Gender Studies he has worked within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Queer community as an anti-violence advocate and peer outreach worker.  Outside of work he enjoys flower gardening, baking, Blues and Bluegrass music, playing in the mud and the occasional game of Wii bowling.  Clark is honored to be part of Parallel Justice and going places where no victim services program has gone before.  



Rain Banbury, Parallel Justice Specialist at The Burlington Community Justice Center, is thrilled to be the latest addition to the Parallel Justice team. A firm believer in the idea of empowering individuals to solve their own problems, Rain especially enjoys helping victims advocate for themselves. Prior to joining the Burlington CJC, Rain worked withe the Greater Barre Community Justice Center coordinating their reparative board program. Rain trained as a professional mediator and facilitator through Woodbury College's Conflict Management program.





Lt. Jason Lawson, of the Burlington Police Department currently serves as a Lieutenant with the Burlington (VT) Police Department where he oversees the delivery of police services. We are thrilled to have Jason join the team!
