WCADP is excited to announce the hiring of Brynn Smith, who will act as a Field Organizer in support of WCADP’s work with Safe and Just Alternatives Campaign (SJA). Thanks to our generous supporters and a grant from the Tides Foundation, WCADP has expanded its capacity to bring Brynn on board.
She has been able to hit the ground running because she has already done extensive work with SJA. She comes to us from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and, among other things, worked with Mishi Faruqee, (the SJA Campaign Manager), on the SJA lobby day in January. Brynn brings a wonderful sense of fun to the job as well and a wide range of experience. In addition to working for criminal justice in various ways, she has worked and studied in Hungary and Japan. She plans to go to law school.
Please join the Board of Directors in welcoming Brynn, who began her new job on April 30.
A Note From Brynn
Hello. I’m very excited to be the Field Organizer for WCADP, which is helping to spearhead Safe and Just Alternatives (SJA), a campaign to end the death penalty in Washington State. I will be working closely with Mishi Faruqee, SJA’s Campaign Manager. While Mishi focuses on grasstops advocacy in the form of mobilizing organizational allies, I will travel to commu- nities around Washington to promote SJA on the grassroots level. We’re planning death penalty education and outreach events around the state, so watch for upcoming events in your neighborhood—I’d love to meet you there!
Part of our campaign strategy is to let our lawmakers know that Washingtonians who support death penalty repeal come from a variety of backgrounds, communities, and professions. To convey this important message, SJA will deliver letters from religious leaders and clergy members, current and former law enforcement officials, and victims’ family members to our legislators. If you are a member of one of these important stakeholders in the effort to end the death penalty, please consider adding your name to the growing list of supporters. And, please print copies for your family, friends, neighbors, or others interested in signing. The more signatures we gather, the more powerful the message!
I look forward to connecting with you around the state. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
