Executive Director
Health Alliance for Violence Intervention

FOCUS
Fatimah leads the Health Alliance for Violence Intervention (HAVI) as its first Executive Director. Through innovative community/hospital partnerships, HAVI has expanded health-based, trauma-informed care by cultivating a powerful national alliance of ER doctors, trauma surgeons, researchers, front line interventionalists, and communities impacted by violence. Fatimah’s vision for social change has been shaped by a rich heritage of resilience in the wake of harm: from her father ‘s incarceration to her family’s experiences with homelessness. She believes that it is the expansion of healing support and relationships, the elevation of community voice, and the mobilization of community power that catalyzes those impacted to be authors of their own transformation. Fatimah is fighting for a system that centers racial equity, preventative public health strategies, and trauma-informed support to break intergenerational cycles of harm.
