#WeThePeople in the Balcony: Jesse Williams

Jan 22, 2016 | Jared Powell •

Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC)  invited Jesse Williams as his State of the Union guest. In 2015, the Charleston community was challenged to show both compassion and resilience in the wake of tragedy. Jesse embodies this spirit in his day-to-day life as the leader of a non-profit called, “Take it to the Streets,” which tackles everything from serving meals to families in need to mentoring troubled teens. It’s people like Jesse who make Charleston strong.
