Jennifer Williams

Jennifer’s program, The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino, pushes back on simplistic explanations of partisan division and instead supports narratives that tell real stories about real people. As a Seneca Indian, Jennifer prioritises nurturing relationships with people of colour in earlier stages of their careers. She also does a lot of charitable work in the area of disability, and is currently raising and training a service dog. She is passionate about educating the public on how to interact with someone with a disability, and produces a weekly blog about her work with Canine Companions. Externally, Jennifer provides mentorship and guidance to young individuals of colour, including those from the Cattaraugus reservation outside of Buffalo, New York. She is also a member of an Al-Anon and regularly attends to discuss her family’s struggles with alcoholism, which is pervasive in Native American communities. Through this, she connects with and mentors others who struggle with alcoholism in their families, many of whom are from BAME backgrounds.
