Jaleith Gary, Urban Alliance. Servant. Activist. Millennial. Learner. Black Woman.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn. Early on in my childhood, I saw that there were people living on the fringes of society and grew up knowing in my heart of hearts that things didn’t have to be that way, they simply were. Change is something I believe is necessary and achievable, even if only in my surroundings by my own hands. As an adult with my own experiential context for what change must happen, can happen and why, I am motivated and sustained by my faith, working to bring marginalized people from the fringes of society back into its core. Everyone has value and a role to play in bringing our communities to their fullest potentials. Currently, my efforts are concentrated in and around Hartford, CT where I live and serve. When I’m not working or serving, you can find me being a classic foodie and you’re more than welcome to join me!
