Policy Program

2023

My name is Tabitha (she/her/hers) and I am a sophomore from Ohio living in Eliot House and studying Sociology and Government. Growing up in a family that was deeply affected by incarceration, I’ve always had an interest in advancing justice through organizing. As the Co-Chair of the Policy Program, I look forward to supporting students in their work to tangibly impact communities across the country through policy research. On campus, I serve on the executive boards of Concilio Latino, Latinas Unidas, Act on a Dream, PRE, and work as a Diversity Peer Educator. I also serve as a research fellow for two organizations studying mass incarceration and police brutality and work as a Judicial Advocacy Associate for a non-profit working to end gun violence. In my free time, I can usually be found watching Netflix, curating Spotify playlists, or running!
