Justin Decker

Justin Decker covers the Voting Rights beat as a reporter for Campus Progress. A proud alumnus of the California Community College system, Justin transferred to the University of California at Berkeley and finished with an undergraduate degree in political science in 2011. In the past, he has held various positions with the California Community College Foundation, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Tikkun Magazine in Berkeley, and an AFL-CIO affiliated union in Northern California, where he worked as an organizer and researcher on several labor campaigns. Justin is now a candidate for an M.Phil. degree in Politics at the University of Cambridge, where he is nearly finished and looks forward to returning to the United States. Beyond obsessing over the ebb and flow of national politics in Washington, he is interested in the intersections of art and politics generally, the politics of the workplace specifically, and in the power of persuasion and community.
