Chris first came to NYC in 2009 after escaping the Great Recession and a climate of homophobia in his home of Baltimore. Upon evading an abusive relationship Chris made his way to AFC where he was met with the tools he needed to continue on his mission to somehow change the conditions of young people of color. Chris is now a member of the Campaign Staff at Streetwise and Safe, where he teaches youths of color their rights in police encounters and helps build leadership amongst communities affected by police violence. He looks forward to helping pass the Community Safety Act, which includes the first bill ever to ban the systematic profiling of LGBTQ people and people of color by the NYPD.
