Jerome Foster II

Jerome Foster II is the youngest-ever White House Advisor in United States history. This year, at age 19, he was invited to serve on the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council within the Biden administration, informing the President on issues related to environmental justice. Since 2019, Foster spent 58 weeks holding weekly protests outside the White House calling for action on the climate crisis. 

Based in New York City, but born and raised in Washington, D.C., Foster previously served as an intern for civil rights campaigner John Lewis, and served as board member for the DC State Board of Education. Alongside being an environmental activist and emerging technology engineer he is also executive director of OneMillionOfUs, which educates and mobilises young people to register and turn out to vote.
