Carey Jenkins

Senior Organizer

Why do you to this work?

I do this work because I am a servant. I was born an activist and until we are free I will die one.

How has this work changed you?

The work has changed me in so many ways. I am a better more loving and compassionate father, son, brother, cousin, human being because of this work. Seeing our people suffer and feel powerless has changed my heart my spirit my life.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?

If I could have dinner with anyone dead or alive it would be Tupac Shakur. I choose Tupac Shakur because he died so young and left such an impact on the world, I would pick his brain about the Black Panthers, Cointelpro, Hip-Hop, and Quincy Jones.
