"As an artist, producer, facilitator, strategist, and activist/organizer, Anasa's mission is to use intellect, art, and community building to create personal, organizational, and global transformation. A Senior Fellow at the Movement Strategy Center, Anasa joined the Forward Together board in 2011. She began her career by helping build the soul music scene in Atlanta; among her first group of clients was a then-unknown singer/songwriter named India Arie. In the years since, Anasa has served as a member of the National Coordinating Committee for the National Hip Hop Political Convention, member organizer for the Institute for Policy Study's Cities for Progress Program, marketing strategist for Dennis Kucinich's 2004 Democratic presidential campaign, consulting producer for the Hurricane Katrina survivor-focused Finding Our Folk Tour, organizer with the Progressive Majority's Racial Justice Campaign, and producer/leadership team member for the historic Highlander Research and Education Center. No matter what her work, Anasa's belief in the power of personal transformation and her dedication to the power of art and culture are her guiding forces to building justice, equity, and compassion."
