When Janos attended Dartmouth he served two years as student body president, coordinated Students for John Kerry, wrote for the now-defunct Free Press, and interned at the Rockefeller Center.  After graduation Janos worked on political campaigns and ran operations for Hands on Disaster Response in Biloxi, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. Janos returned to New York City to attend Fordham Law School, graduating Magna Cum Laude. During law school he practiced criminal defense, worked on Obama presidential campaign, and began a program for youths incarcerated at Rikers Island.

As an attorney, Janos practiced at a large international law firm, small civil rights firm, and New York City agency focused on police accountability. Most notably, he served as special counsel on the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption, which exposed widespread wrongdoing in New York’s campaign finance and lobbying systems.

Janos is currently the Director of Policy and Campaigns at JustLeadershipUSA, an organization committed to cutting the correctional population in half by 2030, by empowering communities most harmed by mass incarceration. In that capacity he has managed the nationally renowned campaign to #CLOSErikers, and is launching groundbreaking organizing efforts for those inside and coming from prison.
