Meet the 2021 Making Policy Public Jury!

Meet the 2021 _Making Policy Public_ Jury!

We're happy to announce our latest Making Policy Public jury! This year we are joined by Zipeng Zhu, Audrey Sasson, Mohamed Attia, and Alice Chung (clockwise, from top left).

Each year, CUP has a jury of two people prominent in the organizing and advocacy fields and two prominent designers select our Making Policy Public collaborations for the upcoming year. As experts in their respective fields, having the jury determine the issue areas and collaborations for the year keeps CUP accountable to the communities we serve. 

For more information on applying as an advocate, click here, and for more on applying as a designer, click here.

With that, we’re excited to welcome our jury!
