Jasmine Leeward

Jasmine received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Africana Studies from the College of William and Mary in 2016. As the daughter of a Ghanaian immigrant father, she has always been invested in identity politics and the African Diaspora. She has been an organizer with New Virginia Majority since June of 2016. Jasmine started off as a voter registration organizer and is currently the Communications Associate. Much of her work involves fighting for the restoration of voting rights for formerly incarcerated citizens and immigrant rights. She strives to take lofty political policies that are damaging working families and communities of color, and illustrates how they play out in the lives of those it affects. Jasmine’s mission, as an activist by way of communications, is to live up to Audre Lorde’s definition of survival, “learning how to stand alone, unpopular and sometimes reviled, and how to make common cause with those others identified as outside the structures in order to define and seek a world in which we can all flourish.”
