She is a Data Coordinator for the City of Philadelphia: Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity. Prior to becoming a data enthusiast, Brianna was a grassroots organizer in the Southeastern PA region.

Mt. Airy resident Cleo L. Smalls, the Center Director at Center in the Park senior community center, is an experienced professional in event planning and program implementation. Specializing in community-based programming, she brings a strategic and innovative approach to her work, empowering older adults, bridging generational gaps, and combating ageism for a lasting impact on her community.

Tiffany Dominique has been a Germantown resident for over a decade. She is the Senior Health Planner for the Office of HIV Planning (OHP).  Tiffany is a longstanding HIV ally and social justice activist with over 20 years of community engagement experience. Prior to joining OHP she served as Program Director of Narrative Shift at SHOOTERS, teaching documentary filmmaking, working with justice involved individuals as they transition back into life in the Greater Philadelphia community. In addition she ran HIV research-related community advisory boards at the University of Pennsylvania and worked on issues of inclusion and representation of community perspectives in developing research questions relevant to their needs.

Seth Anderson-Oberman, Organizer at SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania, grew up in Germantown, a proud son of Philadelphia’s Black and Jewish working class. Seth fought to increase recruitment and retention efforts for Black students and helped organize campus protests against union busting and Temple-led community displacement efforts in North Philadelphia. A longtime organizer and activist, Seth is a co-founder of the Philadelphia Labor for Black Lives Coalition that formed in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and resulting uprisings.
