Akiliah Manual Mills is running for the Area-wide Homeless Resident position.

I am running for Director at-large because I have a vested interest in the people of downtown. I have helped to plant a new church downtown geared towards the influx of young professionals, currently assistant pastor of a new church plant on Skid Row, served as a Deputy Sheriff for four years and work downtown. I am the executive assistant of Men’s Ministries at the Union Rescue Mission. Downtown is comprised of people, artists, business professionals, homeless and more. I am as diverse and eclectic as downtown itself. If appointed At-large director I will advocate for all. Residences, Commerce, education and the Arts make up downtown. One cannot survive without the other. I will humbly serve as advocate, sounding board and liason.

Thank you.
