Tommy Morris, Jr.
Program Associate for the Youth & Transformative Justice, Liberty Hill Foundation
“I was RPDFF’s first Philanthropy Fellow, and it was life-changing. Not only the relationships I cultivated but the ability to do so because of the prestige of the Foundation. They trusted, supported, empowered, and opened doors that helped create the career path I’m on today. Working with them, in partnership with the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, changed the trajectory of my life, and I’m forever grateful.”
National Urban Fellow:
Co-manager of Alignment Initiative, Chisholm Legacy Project
During my year as a fellow, I supported the Foundation through data analysis and research on policy solutions for issues involving Criminal Justice Reform and Environmental Justice. I plan on leveraging what I learned to expand my knowledge on nonprofit communities from a philanthropic standpoint and expand my capacities to help uplift communities fighting poverty, environmental harm, and neglect.”
