Please describe your current and/or previous roles that relate to your work for justice and equality.
What about your work brings you the most joy or gives you the most pride?
ECDC is one of two agencies charged with resettling refugees. We helped over 400 families transition to life in the U.S.
What is your most meaningful moment or significant accomplishment as it relates to your work for justice and equality?
Working with the Interfaith Council has allowed me to work with people of all faiths and help them learn our similarities outweigh our differences
What is the greatest hurdle you’ve had to overcome?
As a Black American, I had to realize my personal bias was adversely impacting my ability to understand the challenges of others. I had to learn to manage my own bias before I could help others.
How do you empower those around you?
Most people want the same thing, but often use different means to reach their goals. I help them learn empathy for others and in the long run it allows them to accept and embrace the differences
