About LaWana Slack Mayfield
In the early Nineties, I trained under June Rostan at Southern Empowerment Project where I learned Grassroots Community Organizing. In the early 2000’s I trained with Dr. Jamie Washington and Kathy Obear at the Social Justice Training Institute where I trained on Full and Equal Justice for All. In the late 2000’s I worked for Si Kahn at Grassroots Leadership where I was the Mecklenburg County Project Coordinator with a focus on ending For-Profit Prisons, Immigration Reform and Community Organizing.
I share this; for you to learn a little more about my foundation and why I am so passionate about community involvement, access to resources, ending racial bias, and the importance of equity. I am an ACTIVIST.
I ran for office and Won in 2011 in large part because You took a chance on me and supported me for the next 8 years.
As the former District 3 Representative, I led or created the opening of Duncan Donuts & Pinky’s on Freedom Dr. The creation of the Goodwill Opportunity Campus, The Charlotte Premium Outlets, The Targeted Re-Hab Program, The Charlotte Douglas International Airport Job Fair, The First Youth Job Fair in partnership with Charlotte Premium Outlets, Multiple Mixed-Income Housing Projects, the sidewalk crossing on West Blvd (which was needed more than 20 years ago) just to name a few.
While these accomplishments served the District, they all benefited the community as a whole.
I am ASKING for your support as I take my passion for Stable Diverse Price Point Housing, Smart access to upward mobility, Strong economic development knowledge along with my desire to END Racial & Gender Bias, to create a City that is truly “Welcoming to ALL” to the next level as YOUR Council-Member At-Large.
I Don’t Play the Game of Politics. I Do the WORK of Service. YOU can help me continue the work.
