Whitney Washington has proudly called Nashville, TN home since 2012. Born in St. Louis, MO, she spent most of her life in Alabama. She graduated from the University of Montevallo with a B.A. in History and a Journalism minor before getting certified to teach English as a Second Language in Spain. She worked as a researcher and international statistician for the United Methodist Church for four years. During this time she developed a love for justice, eventually becoming a member and taking on leadership positions in the Nashville Feminist Collective, Christ the King Catholic Church, Workers’ Dignity, and the Nashville chapter of Black Lives Matter. Her work in BLM eventually paved the way for her to transition this summer into the role of Operations Associate for the Black Lives Matter Global Network.
