  • Katharine Morris – scholar-activist focusing on environmental justice, Masters of Public Policy candidate at the University of Connecticut; check out her TEDx Talk How To Collaborate For Environmental Justice
  • Sahar Amjad – UCONN Senior; Communications Manager at the #IAmNotAVirus Campaign. She’s also the Transport Hartford Assistant Coordinator of the Center for Latino Progress
  • Akia S. Callum – President of the NAACP CT State Conference Youth and College Division and the Director of Community Impact and Marketing at Waterbury Bridge to Success
