Rachita Singh, Public Relations and Communications Coordinator
Rachita is the Public Relations and Communications Coordinator at AAPD. Her work centers around representing AAPD on various platforms and advancing AAPD’s mission through internal and external communications.
Her goals are to make the disability vote a prominent aspect of politics and spread awareness on its impact and to ensure that people with disabilities are not treated as second-class citizens. She got her B.A. in Government from the College of William and Mary and a Master’s in Public Policy from Duke University. She has been a part of various professional fields, from interning on Capitol Hill, to working as an assistant paralegal in a law firm, to being a project assistant at Howard University.
Her introduction to disability rights and AAPD came from a summer internship with AAPD through the Google Policy Fellowship program. The disability community at large is not part of the majority of the population’s general knowledge and political awareness and Rachita hopes to help change that.
