Allison Gibbs is a Florida native, who moved to Memphis to teach and organize communities around education. Seeing the damage that the criminal justice system was doing to the communities where she taught and organized, she shifted her focus and effort to criminal justice reform. She became Just City's first employee in the summer of 2015.
Since then, Allison has essentially helped build a non-profit from the ground up. A bit unexpectedly, she became the resident expert in nonprofit tax filings, audits, and all manner of accounting principles, not to mention the author of a few of Just City's programs, she is looking to what's next. Sadly, for us, that is taking her back home to Florida and her family. We recorded this 'exit interview' with Allison a few days before she moved.
