- Parent Engagement Program Coordinator, Washington Lawyers' Committee
Jhonna Turner is the Parent Empowerment Program Coordinator with Washington Lawyers’ Committee. Her professions in education in Washington, D.C. have ranged from being a parent organizer, teacher, and child advocate. Jhonna studied Child and Adolescent Studies at Bowie State University; Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on social justice in public education at Loyola University; and also received a certificate in Education Policy and Program Evaluation from Georgetown University. Although Jhonna is a very proud resident and homeowner in Washington, D.C., she is also proud to be from Syracuse, N.Y. – and hilariously loves when D.C. has a “snow” storm.
