WHY I FIGHT FOR JUSTICE “We live in a time where many people who are upset by or experience injustices feel like there isn’t anything they can do about it. I fight for justice to change that narrative. Every person’s actions matter, and I want to be there to help people who are brave enough to step forward and fight for their rights.” Shannon Plunkett, Project Assistant
Shannon grew up in Austin, Texas in a family where critical thought was fostered and commitment to both integrity and equality were highly valued. She first became motivated to address issues of equality in high school, when she observed the vast differences in the structures and treatment of students for two local high schools that shared the same building.
