Blatant Frankism

09-05-2019 • 40 mins

Aiyi’nah Ford simplifies her life's work as an endeavor to expose the truth of the collectively oppressed. As a Native Washingtonian, her wealth of experience (10+ years) in social justice advocacy,community organizing, and art-ivist expression has been instrumental in raising awareness and changing regressive legislation on a local and federal level.  She currently serves as the Executive Director of The Future Foundation. Her trauma-informed leadership development and political education facilitation are helping us pave the way for leader-full youth in this city and across the Nation. Aiyi’nah is also Founding C.E.O. of STAND Omnimedia™, a diversified digital media brand with a mission to “STAND with and amplify the voices and cultures that are often silenced."  Under this conglomerate, she hosts “The One Mic Stand with SimplyNay” and has published “#SucessfullySingle: Confessions Of A Professional Dater”. Aiyi’nah has also contributed to such publications as “Love Letters To Our Daughters: A Collection of Womanly Affirmations” and “Shout It Out: Coming Out Black and Brown”. When she is not fighting for our collective liberation, she is sipping loose leaf tea and wearing a #supportisFREE™ t-shirt.
