Rimminey Baskin is an Administrative Associate at the PREA Research Center (PRC). Her educational experience includes research, analyzing data, implementation processes, and communication. Born and raised in Washington, DC, politics, urban culture, and Marion Barry has influenced her career path, life experiences, and educational decisions. Coming into her freshman year as a pre-med student, she had a change of heart that led her to learn more about her history, community, environment, and the officials who make decisions on behalf of her community.
With success, Rimminey first graduated with an associate’s degree in economics from Prince George’s College, then with a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of the District of Columbia. Prior to the PRC, she worked alongside the Federal Emergency Management Agency as a contractor assisting survivors of natural disasters and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority as a transporter and observer of people — how they move, interact, and are impacted by gentrification. Because of her life experience, Rimminey decided that no matter the job title, she wanted to make a difference, and with the faith of her team at the PRC, she thinks that we will be able to do just that.
