I am involved with the following organizations through activism, professional affiliation, and personal friendships.

Professional Organizations:

Non-Governmental Organizations of interest:

  • Institute for Policy Studies – where I interned with Marcus Raskin when I was in college, and where I wrote a book with him many years later.
  • National Democratic Institute – comparative governance, election monitoring, party training, civil society.
  • Center for International Policy, which in 2018 renewed and re-launched its interest in Africa!
  • We Are Family is a volunteer service organization in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of DC.  They bring groceries, companionship, and a sense of community to about 500 seniors every month.  Volunteer!
  • Friends of African Village Libraries – an organization with a clever literacy mission, co-founded by economist Michael Kevane from Santa Clara University.
  • The Diaspora African Women’s Network (DAWN) offers some amazing mentoring for young African professionals in DC, and they organize some really cool events with a personal touch.
