Greater Sacramento Urban League Young Professionals
GSULYP Year in Review
Hello Young Professionals,
It has been an honor to serve as president of GSULYP in 2013/14. I had a wonderful time! I am grateful for the opportunity, the exciting memories, and lifeline friendships created. I had a blast serving with you all, but it's time for me to focus on my career as a community organizer, organizing the faith community and formerly incarcerated to end mass incarceration and advance equitable economic development in Sacramento's underserved communities.
I would like to acknowledge and thank GSUL's CEO James Shelby for supporting GSULYP, my board for their dedication, creativity, and support for my vision; our former Marketing Chair Tiarra Earls for sharing her social media expertise to re-brand our organization, and our Public Relations Chair Carmela Smith for her diligence and continuous dedicated support for YP behind the scenes; NULYP President Brandi Richards for investing in myself and our chapter; NULYP VP & Western Region VP Jameeka Green for her support, technical assistance, encouragement, and accountability. I want to thank all of our committee chairs who carry out our mission, and our volunteers/members for their support of the movement. Lastly, I would like to thank my mentor and Executive Director of Sacramento Area Congregations Together (ACT), Ashlin Malouf-Spinden for her encouragement and support.
GSULYP is the training ground for a new generation of leaders who are charged with advancing the Urban League's mission and values across Sacramento, California and the Nation. I look forward to July 23rd's election of the next board who will take our organization to the next level. Take a closer look below at some of our biggest accomplishments during the 2013-14 board year!
Yours in the Movement,
President, Greater Sacramento Urban League Young Professionals
