Tokumbo Bodunde--Photo by Karly Beaumont A number of non-profit, educational and progressive institutions as a teacher, video producer, office administrator or communications specialist:

Chica Luna Productions, a non-profit org that has supported and developed women of color who use popular media to engage social justice themes and are accountable to their communities.

The Brooklyn College Community Partnership, a creative learning network linking the college to the communities of Brooklyn.

Peer Forward (formerly College Summit), another organization that partners with schools and districts to strengthen college-going culture and increase college enrollment rates, so that all students graduate career and college-ready.

I have trained with:

Several years ago, mostly during college, I worked as a journalist:
