A tireless advocate for the rights of prisoners, Professor Everett has served, since 1998, on the board of directors of Community Partners in Action (CPA), a criminal justice organization whose work includes operating re-entry programs for prisoners, detention and residential facilities for juveniles, and pretrial alternative incarceration programs for adults. Since 2003, he also has served on the Institutional Review Board at the University of Connecticut Health Center where, in his role as prisoner representative, he helps ensure that research projects involving human subjects comply with federal, state and local medico-legal and ethical standards. In addition, Professor Everett, a pro bono coordinator at the Law School and a 1984 graduate, is on the founding committee for the Connecticut Innocence Fund (a joint venture of the Connecticut Bar Foundation and CPA), which will provide support to exonerated inmates upon their release from prison.
