Holly Ballard, WCADP Outreach Coordinator
Holly moved from Arkansas to Seattle in 2011. She has worked on a variety of social justice issues for a number of local and national organizations, but her greatest accomplishment to date is her work in helping to win the freedom of the West Memphis 3—three men who were wrongfully convicted of triple murder in Arkansas in 1994 and released in 2011 after 18 years in prison. Through her work on this case, Holly became well-versed in the world of criminal justice, and she is excited to continue working with the WCADP team on death penalty repeal in Washington! In her free time, Holly enjoys traveling, cycling the Burke-Gilman, and playing with her two cats, Georgia and Goliath.
Katie Henderson, Fall Intern
Katie is a student studying criminal justice at Bellevue College. An out- spoken opponent of the death penalty, she started volunteering regularly at WCADP after meeting several members of the staff and board at local events. She enjoys reading, spending time with her cats, musicals, traveling, and studying criminology.
Blair Farmer, Fall Intern
Blair discovered her true passion is in social justice after studying to become a sign language interpreter. She learned about WCADP through a guest speaker in her Public Policy Analysis class at Seattle Central Community College where she is earning a BA in Applied Behavioral Science. She is still involved in the Deaf Community and is excited to work as an intern with WCADP and to learn more about creating positive social change.
