Jared Dixon He/Him (Aaron Burr, Philip Company) My personal view of justice is rooted in its necessity for inclusivity, equity, and the broadest consideration of all lives. Specifically those lives that are, in history, far too often refused the notion. I’m big on shifting community, culture, and thought in favor of a more peaceful and safe world for the most marginalized and the least safe. My hope is that Ham4Progress will continue to be apart of that conversation.
