Waameeka AheVonderae

Progress Virginia.
Meeka’s activism began as a member of the Political Education and Action Committee (PEAC) at Howard University, where she studied Political Science and Africana studies. Through PEAC she protested against mass incarceration, unjust policies, and racial inequality. After graduation, she was awarded a 2014 Freedom Summer Fellowship. This allowed her to travel throughout Virginia to register voters from predominately Brown and Black communities including immigrants, persons with felony convictions, and homeless citizens while advocating to change policies that unfairly targeted people of color. She also contributed to organizing and marketing the District of Columbia’s Office on African Affairs’ 3rd Annual African Festival and moderated numerous community forums held by the office. Meeka enjoys traveling and trying new foods. After living and working in West Africa, she is now fluent in French and conversational in Wolof, the lingua franca of Senegal.
