Jamila Rice

Capacity Building Manager

Jamila Rice is a Capacity Building Manager in Fresno, CA, currently working to build internal and external capacity to transform schools into equitable places of learning and development through the vehicle of Black liberation. She graduated from the illustrious Historically Black College Tuskegee University in 2018. Jamila had the opportunity to work in two CFJ regional offices, having held the Community Organizer role in Long Beach 2019-20 and in Fresno 2020-21. During her tenure in Long Beach, she helped implement Long Beach Unified School District’s first district-wide Equity and Design Team. While in Fresno, she assisted in launching the Rebuild & Reimagine: A Vision for Racially Just Schools Campaign in the Fresno Unified School District. Racial Justice has always been her passion, not knowing what to call racial justice as a child but realizing that her community needed transformation and radical dreaming beyond oppression. Schools are a vital landscape to our development; they must become free of policies and procedures that harm Black and brown students. On any given day, you can find Jamila participating in community events with Democratic Socialists of America (Fresno), playing with her dog Bella Noche, and watching reality TV in her free time.
