- SparkAction Youth Justice Policy Fellow
An advocate and writer, Jaizyha Jones supports the Forum’s SparkAction content, social media production and campaign supports. Before joining the team, she was member of the Youth Represent Youth Speakers Institute, and social media intern with exalt, an alternative to justice-involvement program, of which she is an alum.
From Jaizyha: “Life has always given me a run for my money. In my 19 years, I’ve always had a passion for working with my peers, especially young people who have been involved with the justice system. I like to write, am interested in data and I care about policy. I paused college after my freshman year, when I became a mother. I now know I want to go back, and work in the social justice field. I love having the opportunity to create and share stories, and make sure young people like myself are given full control of portraying messages. I’ve finally found a place to put all my passions in one and let my creativity flow.”
