AJ Musewe

Director, Youth Leadership Development

Coming from a family with 9 aunts and uncles and 25 first cousins on her mom’s side, AJ Musewe has lived the saying “it takes a village to raise a child.” Kenyan-born, she grew up in Seattle navigating two different cultures and constantly looking for a way to blend the two. AJ started with CP from the first day as one of the community builders with her activism life partner, Audrey V, for voter fieldwork. As the director for CP’s Leadership Lab, she’s excited to find ways to create safe spaces for young people to make mistakes, learn, and grow as they explore what kind of future they want for themselves and to decide how they want to engage civically with their community.
