Yohance Whitaker joined the Legal Aid Justice Center as an intern in 2019, focused on pre-trial
justice and police accountability. Prior to LAJC, he was the program assistant for a youth
theological institute. In 2020, Yohance transitioned to serve as an organizer with the Civil Rights
& Racial Justice Program, where he struggles alongside community members to dismantle
systems that incarcerate people of color and the poor. Through his experiences, he has developed
a strong faith in the abilities of oppressed communities to shape the law and transform society,
beginning in their neighborhoods. Yohance earned his bachelor’s degree from William & Mary
and the Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Union University, where he received the
Samuel DeWitt Proctor Preaching and Leadership Award.
