Addison Tucker

Addison grew up in Harrisonburg, VA and graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor's degree in Social Work, and a minor in Anthropology. As a student, she served as a Diversity Educator with D.E.E.P. Impact, facilitating discussions and developing programs to educate the student body on all facets of identity. She believes that before we can overcome societal injustices, we must first be able to name and talk about what these injustices are. She is excited to be the Campus Compact fellow because she "think[s] there is nothing more important than to challenge yourself and others to be actively engaged in their own lives and the lives of others."
