David Dwight IV

David Dwight, Catalyst: Communications and Strategy — David Dwight 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.
He graduated in the spring of 2015 from Washington University in St. Louis with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering. His experience co-founding St. Louis Students in Solidarity, an organization that 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 very excited to support the work of Forward Through Ferguson and other partners in the St. Louis region as we forge a path toward racial equity.
