“I consider that it became even some-more dire to see a propagandize district’s due devise of a new propagandize get vetoed by a former administrator of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, and to see politicians use a town/the Corridor of Shame for broadside reasons but formulation to make change, or meaningful what it feels like to have singular opportunities formed on your zip code,” he added.
“Therefore, we motionless to stop articulate and do whatever tiny thing we can to residence this emanate and be a change.”
Washington continued, “(Denmark is) a place we call home, it’s a place we love, and it’s a place where we would like to make change. My credentials in Denmark drives my passion for a Washington Foundation since we know a struggles firsthand.”
