Rami Jackson

Rami Jackson is a Development Fellow in RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program. He graduated in 2016 from Syracuse University with an undergraduate degree in Policy Studies. He previously served as a Development Coordinator at the National Wildlife Federation and has worked on numerous political campaigns.

Jackson first started working in this space through an internship with an AIDS center in Syracuse, New York where he saw first hand how people with disabilities face poverty, stigma and alienation from the larger community. While he had been a supporter of progressive causes in the past, it was here that he realized people with disabilities often are left out of the diversity conversation.

Jackson wants to raise money for causes that make the world a more equitable and equal place so everyone can maximize their potential and follow their passions. Eventually, he would like to run his own nonprofit and advocate for progressive policies at a federal level and make an impact in communities nationwide.

Here at RespectAbility, Jackson is playing a key role in grant prospecting and research. He works closely with Development Manager Franklin Anderson and President Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi to find new partnerships and opportunities for RespectAbility. In his free time, Jackson enjoys reading, writing, cooking, biking, drawing and trying to learn how to dance. Yes, and he agrees with you, he does look like J Cole.
