I am a 38 year-old organizer, community advocate and social justice leader who had a street Associates Degree in criminal mentality before I was 18 – nearly 15 years before I earned an actual Associates Degree from Coastline Community College.
I was incarcerated for 20 years before being released in August 2018, The Blackest August in my lifetime! Incarceration was intended to bastardize me, but I found a Father in Education so I was obedient to its structure in guiding me.
Within months of my release I found an opportunity for Community Leadership with Fathers and Families of San Joaquin working on Environmental Justice. I returned to Stockton with a goal to uplift the narratives and voices of the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated Community, and equip them with the tools to be advocates of change for themselves and their Communities.
I created the Participatory Action Workshop: Seeds in Concrete, an Environmental Justice program for systems impacted youth, which helps them Reclaim Their Cultural Roots and realize their own personal power for positive Growth. I see myself facilitating a process in letting others grow and find their way. This is a process of Empowerment, raising consciousness of People by providing information about the environment and then helping them take more intentional actions that can improve their lives and their Communities.
