David Dwight IV

David Dwight IV is the Communication and Strategy Catalyst at Forward Through Ferguson. He began his time with the Ferguson Commission as a fellow, working closely with the Citizen-Law Enforcement Relations working group, building the final report, maintaining the digital report platform, and aiding the storytelling team to connect the everyday experiences and stories of St. Louisans to the policy recommendations of the report. Though his undergraduate focus was in biomedical engineering, his experience co-founding Students in Solidarity, which mobilized student activism and lobbied university administrations to improve the experience of people of color on campus, led him to center social justice and advocacy as critical aspects of his future career. He is dedicated to supporting the work of Forward Through Ferguson and the region as we forge a path toward racial equity.
