Community Organizer, Spoken Word Activist, and PhD in Leadership and Change student Kavon Ward, has teamed up with fellow activists in California to launch Anti-Racist Movements (ARMs) Around the South Bay (LA). The mission of ARMs is focused on “Mobilizing families to raise anti-racist children and enact change in our community through organized action.” The group provides a space for involvement and education to engage in deep conversations about privilege and race to enact change. Ward brings years of demonstrated experience in community leadership to the group and has extensive expertise in nonprofit organizational development, grassroots organizing, governmental relations, and volunteer management.
