Amalfi first joined the movement to end violence against women as a student attorney in the Domestic Violence Law Clinic at Tulane University, where she represented survivors obtaining protective orders, divorces and child custody. This led to Amalfi opening a law practice in 2011 that primarily focused on family law and civil relief from domestic violence. In 2013, Amalfi became the Interagency Coordinator for the New Orleans Blueprint for Safety, where she facilitated the adaptation and implementation of the model Blueprint for Safety policies in seven criminal justice agencies. In this role, Amalfi prioritized addressing the disproportionately high arrest rate of Black women for domestic violence, while working with the local community to identify and implement new practices for reducing disparity and promoting equity in the criminal legal system’s response to domestic violence crimes. Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, Amalfi has worked for Praxis International since January 2016. She works with communities across the country to promote and implement the Blueprint for Safety, while also assisting with other Praxis program initiatives such as our Institutional Analysis and advocacy training. Amalfi currently volunteers as the Vice President for the New Orleans Family Justice Center Alliance.
