Gage Garretson (2016 Amsterdam Fellowship) has been deeply involved in Humanity in Action’s work, previously working for Humanity in Action Germany, annually reviewing and evaluating potential applicants and currently acting as a project assistant at Humanity in Action Inc. With professional experience with the U.S. State Department, the German Parliament and many international organizations, Gage is dedicated to bridging on the ground policy realities for minorities directly to policymaking institutions. Currently, his professional interests lie at the tense intersection of technology, human rights and policy, specifically with a focus on social media and its influence on real world social divisions. In 2020, Gage plans to undertake graduate studies in cyber policy and looks forward to deepening his connection with the Humanity in Action community through his work.
