What neighborhood do you live in?

South Shore

How long have you been a member of Action Now?

I joined Action Now in 2010

What made you get involved?

It was the late Hueron Wilks, a good brother and former organizer, that reached out to me because he'd heard I had concerns about the education system in Chicago. He invited me to attend a meeting on the South Side. He taught me that I didn't have to stand by while things were happening, and that I had the power to make changes and help people in my community.

What do you hope to accomplish with Action Now?

I am hopeful that I can do my part to help bring "a little bit of justice" to my community. What Action Now has done for me is shown me that I can open up and speak out on the things that matter to me, and that I can use my loud voice to advocate for people who might not know that they too can affect great change in our neighborhoods.
