Ifeoma Ezimako

Ifeoma Ezimako is a first-generation Nigerian American who was born and raised in Atlanta. In 2012, she moved to Maryland where she developed her passion for community service by actively volunteering with recreation centers, schools and at her church. Her activism took flight when she attended Howard University in Washington, D.C., and became involved in local grassroots campaigns and canvassing efforts.

She later went on to graduate from Bowie State University (another HBCU) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Sociology.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ifeoma volunteered with One Fair Wage, an organization fighting for fair wages for service workers. She became dedicated to giving a voice to people who were socially and economically silenced. She eventually became a full-time organizer for the DMV area. One of her biggest accomplishments was helping win the Initiative-82 ballot campaign in Washington, D.C. in which she helped tipped workers earn a full minimum wage plus tips.

Currently, Ifeoma resides in San Diego where she continues to advocate for Black worker rights. Her dedication to her community and passion for social justice make her a true asset in the fight for equality.
