Fernando Medina Corey
I’m a senior Politics and Philosophy major at Whitman College in Walla Walla. I served as an elected member of the Associated Students of Whitman College as Senator, Interim Vice President, and Ombudsman. In the spring of 2012 I visited several prisons as part of a Whitman course and became interested in the criminal justice system. That summer I volunteered part-time with youth in the Juvenile Justice Center in Walla Walla. I am interested in a broad area of software and social media and am excited to begin work as an intern for WCADP.
I am a rising sophomore at Whitman College. I am considering a Sociology major with a Spanish minor. I became interested in criminal justice issues after taking a course (Sociology: Prisons and Punishment) at Whitman. I had the opportunity to visit many correctional institutions around Walla Walla and hear from people throughout the criminal justice system. I decided that I wanted to improve our criminal justice system and thus I am excited to have the opportunity to work with WCADP and to put my passions toward accomplishing abolition of the death penalty.
