Developed a proposal for BCAT program expansion.
Throughout the High Road, I have learned about the various ways social and political institutions perpetuate inequality and the ways we can take action to reduce these barriers. Out of the topics we have covered, I would like to learn more about the inequalities involved in the criminal justice system and the movement in shifting towards community-led policing. The High Road has inspired me through showing how accessible it is to take action to address social inequalities. I had frequently heard the concept of advocating for social change referenced but had little idea of how I could take meaningful action on my own terms.
I hope to attend law school and ultimately work for the government to shape policy related to economic regulation and infrastructure.
The highlight of my time in the High Road program was being able to hear from the variety of insightful speakers attending the Friday program sessions each week.
