Indiana native Camille Ward, who has written about social justice issues both in the U.S. and abroad, is Voices' newest communications associate.
We are delighted to introduce and welcome Camille Ward, who has joined the Voices for Civil Justice staff as a communications associate. She will develop stories about civil legal aid for media placement, and play a significant role in supporting the JusticeVoices network.
Camille comes to Voices with background in journalism, research, and community organizing. She has written extensively about social justice issues, including affordable housing, for an alternative newsweekly in Indianapolis and a leading weekly magazine for housing professionals in the United Kingdom. She has provided strategic communications support to nonprofits in Indiana, Michigan and Oregon. As an AmeriCorps*VISTA in rural Oregon, she led development and implementation of a domestic violence awareness campaign.
A native of Indianapolis, Camille earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from Indiana University and worked with other students to raise awareness on campus about sexual assault and domestic violence. She has a master’s degree in U.S. history from Wayne State University in Detroit, where her thesis focused on reproductive rights and health education.
Camille likes to spend her free time watching Frasier reruns, cooking, reading, and doing “yoga in the park.”
Please join us in welcoming Camille.
