CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA
Want to get in touch with our Charlotte Organizing Director?
Jasmine Wright (she/her)
SC native and graduate of Charlotte’s premier HBCU, Johnson C. Smith University, began organizing after re-chartering her school’s NAACP. Jasmine has a passion for community organizing and has worked with numerous organizations across the state. Jasmine is a strong advocate for youth engagement and participation in our most basic civic duties. Jasmine is a role model and a voice for communities that are commonly not heard, and uses her knowledge to plant seeds among others, while sprouting new leaders along the way.
TAKE ACTION IN CHARLOTTE
Racially restrictive covenants in Charlotte’s working-and middle-class neighborhoods helped to create privately erected racial boundaries that has lasting features that we still see play out today. We believe that just as segregation was caused by specific laws, policies and decision makers, segregation and its multi-generational impacts can be redressed.
We also believe that everyone deserves access to housing affordability, fair tax assessments and paths to homeownership. In order for us to take steps in stabilizing our Charlotte neighborhoods we need to not only acknowledge the harm caused by covenants but to ACT NOW to demand that covenants in Charlotte are denounced. Sign this petition to join the fight.
Want to get in touch with our Milwaukee Organizing Director?
Dynasty Ceasar (she/her)
As an agent of change, Dynasty Ceasar is dedicated to creating pathways for Black Liberation in the city of Milwaukee. As a young person, Dynasty understood the disparities of segregation, as she grew up on Milwaukee’s Northside and was bussed to a predominately white suburb for school through a desegregation program called Chapter 220.
She started her career in Lindsay Heights as a Community Organizer at Running Rebels and focused primarily on eliminating silos, helping residents define their community, and supported efforts to challenge gentrification and displacement. Dynasty also facilitated anti-racism trainings among various organizations and businesses in Milwaukee and Racine with the YWCA Southeast Wisconsin.
In her role as the Environmental Sustainability Program Coordinator at the City of Milwaukee, Dynasty managed pocket parks on Milwaukee’s Northside, extended landscaping maintenance contracts to residents that lived nearby, and developed “Climate Change 101” to connect communities of color to the effects of climate change. She also served on the Racial Equity and Inclusion Leadership team of the City of Milwaukee as the Policy Committee Chair.
Dynasty will continue to strive for a more equitable Milwaukee as she works to desegregate housing in her role as the Senior Organizer for the Redress Movement.
