I am incredibly grateful that you have taken the time to visit our website. As the Executive Director of The Wayne E. Mitchell Center Inc; and a Community Activist I thank you, and if I can be of any assistance to you or your family do not hesitate to contact me.
This is a very crucial time in our lives and we all have been impacted in the worst way. The nation is in turmoil after the numerous deaths of African American men and women by the hands of the police. I started this organization in 2005, because my brother Wayne was a victim of police misconduct. I made a vow to myself that I would do all I could to make sure that other families would not go through the pain and suffering that we experienced. If I am able to help one family get through the pain of losing a loved one, then I have done my job.
I have always wanted to play a major role in social change ever since I was in high school when I began writing plays for my class on racism. While in college I wrote a paper on racial profiling, and focused on a high profile case in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Darryl Hunt, an African American man accused of raping a white women was sentenced to over 15 years for a crime that he did not commit.
After graduating with an AAS degree in Police Science, I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and began working for CMPD, after I left my position there, I continued working to impact lives, encouraging and supporting families and creating trust and quality relationships.
Receiving my Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice Administration was the next step to making a difference, and then on to get a Master of Science in Human Resource Management. I also received a certificate in Business Management at CPCC and have attended various seminars in racial profiling.
I love to volunteer my time, and give back to my community, and I chose to work as a Guardian Ad Litem investigating child abuse and neglect cases in Mecklenburg County. I also chose to sit as Vice Chairwomen of the Women's Commission, teach workshops on resume building, interviewing and dressing for success at the homeless shelters, teach bullying workshops to youth and teens at churches, and work with a National Association as an Advocate helping to direct and guide youth in preventing violence.
One of my favorite quotes says "I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good that I can do" - Jana Stanfield
May GOD continue to bless us all
