Special Keynote by Mahnani K. Clay

Since her arrival in San Francisco in 2011, Mahnani K. Clay (aka: Nani) has made quite a splash as an emerging Leader, community organizer and social justice advocate. She has devoted herself to serving her community and has steadily worked to build her unique intersectional voice and to expand her sphere of impact and influence. She has developed a reputation for continually standing up and insisting that those most affected by any particular "issue" should have a say in their own decisions. "My goal is to bridge the gap between marginalized communities and those who seek to serve us so that our needs are translated into progressive legislation that actually improves our outcomes."  Mx. Clay's work has earned her executive leadership roles in mix of influential organizations in both the LGBTIQQ and POC communities. As a Queer Black Mother, Formerly-Incarcerated,  Disabled, Former Foster Youth, Former Herion Addict, Sex Worker, Formerly Homeless Survivor she speaks from a perspective that isn't often represented in leadership circles.  "What I'm finding is that my perspective isn't always necessarily welcome amongst those who benefit from maintaining the status quo."   Mahnani has been proudly answering the call of Black Lives Matter since late 2014 and has joined powerful network of organizers and influencers. She praises the movement's founders Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi for giving the Black community strength and hope in the face of increasingly overt oppression and visible violence national.

Mahnani is a true believer in the power of redemption as she is experiencing it firsthand currently. She maintains that her story of "Restorative Justice in action" is still being written. She has come so far since she started out volunteering in direct services supporting formerly incarcerated women in 2011. Now, as the President & Founder of Project CHEER (Community Helping Everyone Encourage Restoration), she feels fortunate to be supporting children, family and communities impacted by incarceration and criminal justice involvement.  Her vision is that her community engagement project will be increasingly successful in its efforts to strengthen community connections, amplify voices that cry out for social justice and reduce the stigma of incarceration.
