MORE ABOUT AKILAH
I bring a deep knowledge base about the importance of place—that is, neighborhoods and how they impact social mobility for vulnerable children and families. I also bring a deep commitment to restoring opportunity for all, no matter where they were born, and creating on-ramps for social and economic integration.
