We Stand Together: Vicki Rubio, Public Allies Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — News 8’s David Williams sat down with the director of Public Allies Indianapolis, who says there’s still work to be done in central Indiana to promote social justice, equity and inclusion.

Listening to Vicki Rubio speak, you can feel her passion.

Since 2016, she has led Public Allies Indianapolis as program director.
