Prior to that, he was the founder and lead organizer of Black Lives Matter – St. Paul. He holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Hamline University and a master’s degree in education from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. He was born and raised in St. Paul and he worked for over nine years in education – including seven years at schools in White Bear Lake, then at Century College.
