Imari Wilson is an advocate for youth and adults of marginalized communities who have been labeled and are seeking change. Through networking and educating Imari connects with siloed communities, leaders, and organizers to encourage progressive growth in his hometown – the Capital District of New York. Imari believes this can be done by identifying natural supports within our communities and bridging relationships. Imari believes it should always be the goal to set our future generations on the path of positive progression, forward-thinking, and equitable change. Though he has found great power and resilience in sharing his story, it is equally as powerful and important to listen to the stories of others. It is his mission to bring this into the ways he advocates for others.
