When Discovering Justice developed its Fellowship program in 2020, one of the goals of the program was to build a pipeline for recent graduates interested in being a part of the civic education world. The organization is delighted to announce that two of its Fellows from the past year have joined Discovering Justice’s full-time staff.
Cal Creeden is Discovering Justice’s new Administrative and Development Associate. He is a recent graduate of American University with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Political Science. Going to school in Washington D.C. he was able to pursue unique opportunities to take part in various marches and protests for social change. He has previously interned on Capitol Hill and American Rivers.
Malia Brooks also joined staff as the organization’s Outreach and Recruitment Associate. She recently graduated from Whitman College with a Politics degree. She brings a varied background teaching and mentoring elementary school students in Walla Walla, WA, assisting behind the scenes of a Cambodia-based nonprofit, and guiding her peers through career advising. As an Outreach and Recruitment Associate, she looks forward to building connections across the Commonwealth and expanding access to Discovering Justice’s educational opportunities.
