Walter Logan 

Content & Accounts Lead

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Walter found his love for community building through the bond within his matriarchal Jamaican family. Walter strived to be as hardworking and caring on his own path. This led them to work with nonprofit organizations such as Girls for Gender Equity and Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies  (FPWA). As an experienced facilitator, they have led anti-discrimination training with Project Reach NYC discussing transphobia and sexism. His experience in community development and educational justice work led Walter to the University of Vermont where he is pursuing both a BS in Public Communication and a Master’s of Public Administration.
