Southern Center for Human Rights Microsoft Fellowship
With the Southern Center for Human Rights (SCHR) Fellowship, I was one of two people selected throughout the state to engage in research-based and community-driven solutions regarding policing in the city of Atlanta. More of my work with SCHR can be found here.
FICPFM, Formerly Incarcerated Convicted People and Families Movement, hosts two, 6-week long fellowships equipping formerly-incarcerated leaders with the tools and resources they need to successfully run campaigns. During this fellowship, I was awarded the opportunity to learn different styles of leadership and how each fit me as an individual.
With REFORM, I advocated for and educated people about probation and parole reform in the state of Georgia. Being the most supervised state in the world, Georgia has a long way to go before we see justice and equality. Through this ambassadorship, I hope to change the shape of our system.

Beyond the Box

At RestoreHER, I work closely with activist Pamela Winn on managing her public presence and social media, creating a press kit and coordinating outreach, and more. In 2021, I had the honor of working on two pieces of legislation centered on bringing safety and dignity to incarcerated pregnant women.
Winn and I were also featured in Ms. Magazine as co-authors of an article raising awareness for HB 377, the Women's CARE Act. You can read the article here.

At the NIA, I work as the projects assistant for a variety of different initiatives. I was the coordinator for Family Day, an online event that helped Georgian families navigate the GDC; I started their first support group; I was second-in-command for their research project If Moms Ran Prisons; and I received training on Notion, Slack, and G Suites.
Destiny's Daughters of Promise
At Destiny's Daughters of Promise (DDP), I created their content, ran their analytics, scheduled posts, and came up with new initiatives such as Volunteer of the Month. Additionally, I wrote posts for their blogs and edited many of the videos on their platform
