Angela is one of our leaders for Mission u 2019 Issue Study: Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools by Dr. Monique Morris
My name is Angela Reed, I am a global mission fellow (US-2) of the United Methodist Church. My placement site is as community organizer at Tacoma Community House for a service term of 2 years. I grew up in Maine and moved to Maryland when I was 18 to find my father and to start a new chapter.
After a five year search to find my father, my newly found brother, encouraged me at the age of 24, to go back to school and further my education.
During my college years, I was the Vice President of United Campus Ministry (UCM) where I would coordinate mission trips to aid with various community disasters in areas such as West Virginia, Kentucky and Philadelphia.
While I was Vice President of UCM, my passion to actively seek social and racial justice grew to put my faith in action. In May of 2018, I graduated as first generation with a bachelors in Exercise Sports Science. Some of my hobbies include writing power poetry for my blog, recording videos of my poems and actively calling out racism. It was my passion for justice that lead me to the global mission fellow program and Tacoma Community House.
You can find some of the work I have done so far and my poetry on my Facebook blog: Sun Flower Reed
