Brad Wassink rejoined CPJ in 2013 as Communications Coordinator after serving a year as Public Justice Intern. He has experience as a policy researcher and community organizer for several non-profit organizations, working on environmental advocacy, supportive housing, and restorative justice for organizations such as ACORN, Prison Fellowship Ministries, and Clean Water Action.
He grew up in the Christian Reformed community and has also attended Presbyterian and Anglican churches. These traditions have fostered his passion for social justice which, coupled with his interest in political science, has made the intersection of faith and political life especially intriguing to him.
Brad has a B.A. in International Relations from Calvin College and he studied abroad in Jamaica and Ghana.
For two years he and his wife, Erin, taught ESL in Seoul, South Korea. They now live in Ottawa where they attend St. Peter & St. Paul’s Anglican Church.
