Jackson Gode '14, a Research Analyst in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution, has seen many of his articles published online. The Brookings Institution based in Washington, DC, is the top-ranked public policy think tank in the world. Their mission is to conduct in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national and global level.

Jackson's work at Brookings addresses a variety of domestic policy topics and issues including voting rights, congressional oversight of the Trump Administration, and tax politics. He is currently overseeing a multi-state research project testing the effectiveness of voter registration at volunteer income tax assistance (VITA) sites. 

While at Seattle Academy Jackson was an active member in Youth Legislature and served as the 2014 Youth Secretary of State. On multiple occasions throughout high school he traveled to the state capitol in Olympia which allowed him to meet with various politicians including current Governor Jay Inslee. 

We are happy to see Jackson pursuing interests that were identified and nurtured at SAAS. Congratulations on his  accomplishments and contributions in Washington, DC.
