Precious Edmonds is an organizing and a part of SOBLACC Leadership. She is a Black scientist from the South Side of Chicago and former educator. Her time spent in education reaffirmed her commitment to the progression of communities that have been systemically devalued. Precious believes that in order to see equitable change that work must be political, social, and familial. Precious is excited to be apart of an organization that challenges established systems in the name of racial and social justice. She says, "It feels good when values align with the work." She currently resides in Ashland, Oregon with her daughter, Aminah.
