Because of WAIP, I…
...have a Buckeye community in D.C.
...am now a state representative!
...had the confidence and knowledge to move back to Washington and start my career.
...know what it means to be a public servant.
...found my purpose.
WAIP's mission is to support and develop the next generation of anti-racist public servants.
