Helping Organize Community to Stop Massive Parking Garage

In 2021, Jerred, as Downtown Neighborhood Assoc. President, was approached by Uptown leaders and residents asking for help to stop a massive, 7-story parking garage from being built in their single family home, quaint community.  The garage, proposed by St. Jude, would have been built at 4th Street & AW Willis.  United with the community, Jerred took the message and plea to the DNA board of directors who unanimously voted to stand with the community.  Jerred, arm in arm with the community, helped advocate for the community and their plea for asking St. Jude to build the garage at their original location which was not in the uptown community.  Together, they went before the Board of adjustments and convinced them the project was harmful to the community; the board voted it down.

Founder / Creator of State's First Rainbow Crosswalk

In November 2019, Jerred led the efforts to make state history by installing the state's first rainbow crosswalk paid for and installed by volunteers and private donations.  The crosswalk was installed in the Cooper-Young community, which has the highest concentration of same-sex identifying households in the southeast United States.
