Lovell, II, Walker is Co-Chair of the Legal Redress Committee for the Des Moines Branch as well as the State NAACP in Iowa.

Walker has co-authored, with Mr. Lovell, five Amicus Curiae Briefs in the Iowa Supreme Court on behalf of the NAACP. The issues in these have included a challenge to the constitutionality of pretextual traffic stops (written in conjunction with counsel for the ACLU of Iowa), the constitutional right to an Impartial Jury drawn from a fair cross section of the community served by the trial court, the authority of the Iowa Civil Rights Commission (which a private corporation claimed had been ousted by an employee’s arbitration agreement), and the validity of “Ban the Box” ordinances passed at the local level.

July 27th, 2004 - A little known State Senator from Illinois took the stage at the Democratic National Convention and gave America a glimpse into its future. John Kerry accepted the nomination of his party, but it was Barack Obama who made everyone think HE should be the next President of the United States. Hearing Senator Obama tell the story of his origin, bringing together two continents, two families, two completely different paths which merged to forge one man, allowed us to hope. His verse,“We’re not red states, We’re not blue states, We’re the United States of America!” still echoes within the soul of those who worked to turn his candidacy into a Presidency. He showed us that America is still the land where impossible dreams can be made into reality. He gave me, a black man from Chicago, goosebumps.August 26th, 2020 - I was on a Zoom Call, interviewing a little known candidate for a County Supervisor in Maricopa County, Arizona I got those familiar goosebumps. Hearing Jevin Hodge, a young man raised by a single mom, tell you about the time he told his class of underserved students “I Love You” will make you remember the goodness of this country. Listening to him, I felt the love in my heart and the spirit of hope bubbling in my chest. Then, hearing Jevin talk about how to bridge the communication divide between the four generations in our workforce and how to make smart investments to build our future gave me the certainty that he has the mental capacity to keep pace with our ever-changing society. He has the heart to inspire hope and the mind to deliver change.Listening to how confident and competent Jevin is, one could envision him defeating any Arizona Republican in the 2022 Governor’s Race or being in contention for The Presidency in 2028 or 2032 (Yes, he’s that good!). These are the moments where you water the seeds to harvest the bounty of greatness.Jevin is deeply involved in his community. He serves as the Chair of the Booker T. Washington Child Development Center, is the former President of the Tempe Union High Schools Education Foundation, and sits on the boards of several non-profit charitable institutions around Arizona. Professionally, he is the National Engagement Director of LINK Strategic Partners, a strategic communications consulting firm based in Washington, D.C. Leading operations in the Phoenix-area, Jevin works with community partners to design media strategy and manage public relations for governments, non-profits, and businesses hosting major events around the US and abroad.He formerly served as the Vice-Chairman of the Arizona Democratic Party, through which he spent three years traveling across Arizona to engage people civically and learn about the short- and long-term challenges facing those who work, study, and live in our state. Jevin was elected by the ADP’s State Committee twice to serve as the youngest African American statewide official in the entire Democratic Party. He previously chaired committees that succeeded in passing bond and override resolutions for Tempe Elementary and Tempe Union High School Districts, augmenting the education of 50,000 students in Arizona. He is the President of the Booker T. Washington Child Development Center, which provides early childhood education and other services to underserved families in South Phoenix.Jevin Hodge was born in Tempe, Arizona and was raised by Berdetta Hodge, his mother and role model. Berdetta, the first black woman elected in the City of Tempe as the President of the Tempe Union High School District Governing Board, instilled in Jevin and his brother a love for service and community. Jevin has a degree in Public Policy from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.Listen to this podcast… Visit his website… Volunteer for and Donate to his movement.Follow him on Twitter or InstagramDownload your own Vote Plan at Vote Plan on Social Media: Marquis:TwitterInstagramFacebookMediumDailyKos
