Jennifer Breedon, Esq.
Attorney Specializing in International Criminal Law and Middle East Policy.
Legal Analyst at Clarion Project
Based in Atlanta, Georgia
Jennifer Breedon is a legal analyst & attorney with specializations in International Criminal Law and Constitutional Law licensed in the District of Columbia. Prior to joining Clarion Project, Jennifer worked for a Washington, DC-based nonprofit as the Regional Manager for the Middle East in protecting and communicating with persecuted minorities throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
Jennifer has traveled extensively to the Middle East to meet with government officials and discuss Islamist ideology with population even going to the front lines of the fight against ISIS in Iraq. In Egypt, Jennifer set up a sewing factory for the family members of 21 Christians beheaded in 2015 by Islamic State militants in Libya. Jennifer also worked with the Assyrian Church playing a role in the negotiations that led to the release of 42 Christian hostages in February 2016. She has since worked with government officials in Northern Iraq to ensure humanitarian and security protection for the victims of ISIS.
Jennifer worked for the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law as well as the American Center for Law & Justice where she clerked in the international law department analyzing Middle East issues. At the Center for Global Justice, Jennifer performed legal work for organizations involved in combating human sex trafficking and was selected to speak at the Southeastern Crime Stoppers Annual Convention in 2014.
While still in law school, Jennifer wrote the first legal journal article providing the legal argument to label groups like ISIL as “genocidal” in nature and calling on the redefining of the term “terrorism” to promote International Courts with the justification to prosecute such groups and defeat the ideological war of Islamist extremism. Jennifer’s work has been published in the Brazilian Journal of International Law and the Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy, entitled, respectively, “Redefining Terrorism” and “Why the Combination of Political Lawfare and Universal Jurisdiction Will Destroy the Sovereignty of States.” She has championed the genocidal designation by ISIS since before it was established and used her expertise to aid members of U.S. Congress in unanimously passing the bipartisan Resolution of March 2016 that declared genocide against Christians and Yazidis in Iraq and Syria by the Islamic State. Jennifer continues to fight for human rights and advocates for minorities persecuted throughout the world.
Jennifer received a certification in Islamic Studies from Islamic Online University, headed by a radical cleric, to fully grasp the depth of Islamist ideologies and the subversion of basic freedoms. She received her BA in Political Science from Georgia State University and her JD from Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach where she studied National Security and Constitutional Law from America’s most prestigious legal minds, including U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Litigator James Duane, author of “You Have the Right to Remain Innocent.” Jennifer provides legal analysis for topics involving international criminal law, human rights, and analysis on legal matters as they relate to extremism from a non-partisan, fact-based standpoint.
Jennifer is a former Miss Junior Florida and was 2nd Runner Up Miss Junior America in 2003. She currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her dog, Grace, but travels extensively to meet with government officials, foreign attorneys, and those oppressed due to extremist ideologies or wherever there may be a need for her expertise. She is a debater, public speaker, and staunch advocate for truth and justice.
