Why I joined... I am a longtime advocate for race and gender justice. My justice lens focuses on centering BIPOC women and girls in policy, organizing, and advocacy to develop a roadmap for equity. Currently, I lead all programming strategies for the Power Coalition. My work includes the statewide growth of the Power Coalition and the implementation of core programming, such as 'She Leads'– a leadership program for female leaders of color. As I've built and developed She Leads for three years, its focus is to create a cadre of like-minded women and provide resources, training, and development to the "unsung" heroes within the community to help them leverage their work. I've been able to grant over $200,000 in resources by trusting Black and Brown women to create their own innovative healing strategies within their communities. I would love to be a part of a network that continues to invest in women and leverage my very own network throughout the country.
