E-mail address



Dijon has always had a passion for advocacy work, especially when that work affects marginalized communities. That passion led him to working for ACLU-WV.

Since joining, he has worked as the voting rights project manager, focusing on West Virginia’s statewide elections and improving the West Virginia democratic process for voters as a lobbyist. In April 2021, Dijon transitioned to the role of advocacy specialist where he focuses on federal, state, and local policies that deal with the intersection of voting rights and criminal and juvenile justice.

Prior to joining the ACLU, Dijon attended Howard University where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics and political science. During his time in college he interned with the Children’s Defense Fund, Howard University General Counsel, and ACLU-WV as a Policy Fellow.

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, and reading about or watching his favorite sports teams, the New York Giants and Los Angeles Lakers. Dijon lives in Dunbar.
