What neighborhood do you live in?

Englewood

How long have you been a member of Action Now?

Since 2008.

What made you get involved?

An organizer spoke with me about a community action and invited me to come out. I attended a neighborhood march and saw the immediate impact on bringing awareness to the neighborhood. What I saw that day affected me, and made me want to get involved and take action to change my community for the better.

What do you hope to accomplish with Action Now?

My community needs resources and investment to make things better for everyone. I want to help bring those resources so that our kids can thrive in a safe and stable environment, which will hopefully help put an end to the violence that has plagued our streets.
