Cody Nelson, co-executive director of Anishinabe Legal Services (ALS), recently resigned to take on a new role as development director for Children’s Law Center of Minnesota.

Cody began as a staff attorney at ALS in 2006, primarily representing juveniles in delinquency cases, victims of domestic abuse in family law matters, and clients facing evictions in tribal court.  Over the years, Cody delved into administrative work, including grant writing, training other staff and agency providers, and participating in Code Committee Development with the local Tribal Councils.  In 2012, Cody was named co-executive director of ALS. In addition to his great work at ALS, Cody was the program's representative on the Bi-County Community Action Program (Bi-CAP) for Beltrami and Cass Counties since 2009. 

Cody has been a zealous advocate on behalf of clients and a great mentor to staff at Anishinabe Legal Services. He is wished the very best in his new post.
