DNA President Jerred Price Creates "Committee for Affordability & Sustainability"

July 18, 2020

"Committee for Affordability & Sustainability" - This committee will focus on ways the DNA and city can work together to help people with drastic increases in land values and tax increase. They will also work toward ways to help keep downtown rents affordable for all to be able to live downtown affordably.

This committee will be chaired by Dr. Kevin Brooks. A native of Memphis, Dr. Kevin Brooks has spent twenty-five years leading efforts to transform communities by connecting people to policy, philanthropy and advocacy. An experienced educator, organizational leader and fundraising development consultant, Kevin brings to Memphis a commitment to foster equity and shared prosperity for all its citizens.
Also joining this committee as Co-Chair is Shelisa Cox. Shelisa is a native Memphian. She grew up in the heart of North Memphis and since the age of eight, she always worked in her community to make a difference. She is a member of the NAACP and the Chair of Outreach for Democratic Women of Shelby County. She wanted to serve on this committee because she believes that in Memphis, everyone should have the option to live where they want to despite of their income or hardships. She also believes long term residents of communities facing increasing tax values and rents shouldn't be forced out of their homes due to their communities not being affordable.
