Channing Blake

Policy Manager

Channing serves as our primary liaison with the Louisiana legislature. With insight gained from more than a decade in this field, he shapes every piece of legislation we help introduce and facilitates their passage. Over his career, he has been instrumental in bridging the gap between sides with the goal of fairness, equity, and justice for all involved.

Channing joined the Parole Project staff in September 2022 after working in the Department of Public Safety and Corrections’ Crime Victim Services Bureau. Prior to that position, he worked on staff for several elected officials across the state of Louisiana. Channing combines his experiences in victim representation and policy work with firsthand interactions with our clients to build a holistic view of mass incarceration’s impact.
