Jaret Fishman - Director of Policy

Humble learner, inspired by faith, and dedicated to the service of my community. Animated by the idea that an individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. Striving to make the dash, in between the birth and the death, vibrant. Deeds > words. Anti-apathy.
