Ronnie Strode III is a junior at Brown University concentrating in Political Science with a focus on the exploration of the criminal justice system. As a member of a bi-racial family, he is interested in observing how the criminal justice system interacts differently with minorities. He currently volunteers at the Rhode Island Public Health Institute (RIPHI) and helps conduct research on health disparities in Rhode Island.
