About Olivia: I am a nonprofit professional, organizer, and dancer living in the wonderful H st. neighborhood of DC. I grew up between Houston and New Orleans and I moved to DC to attend The George Washington University. I studied International Affairs with a concentration in Contemporary Societies and Cultures, focused mainly on faith-based and minority communities, particularly on the role that faith has on social movements. Currently, I lead the Families and Incarceration program at FWD.us, I’m a guest lecturer at Church of The Epiphany, and I take dance classes around the DMV in my spare time.
