Prior to joining FWHC, she spent three years as the Program Manager for WonderRoot Community Arts Center and eight years as a Credit Risk Manager with Wachovia Bank’s Community Development Finance Group. A third generation graduate of Spelman College, Kwajelyn and her brother both continue a family legacy of anti-oppression and reproductive justice activism. She received a BA Degree in economics from Spelman College and an MS Degree in urban policy studies from the Andrew Young School of Public Policy at Georgia State University.
A respected voice on reproductive justice movement building, Kwajelyn is often sought after on the national level. She sits on the board of directors for All-Options, Abortion Care Network, Soul Food Cypher, and ProGeorgia, and is on the steering committees of the Black Mamas Matter Alliance and the Mife Coalition.
Kwajelyn uses the lens of reproductive justice and anti-oppression to spark dialogue, transform perspectives, develop leaders, and cultivate change. She shares her time with her husband and her dog and when time permits, she enjoys attending dance classes, listening to podcasts, exploring museums, spending time with family and friends, fireworks, and hot summer days.
