FOUNDER BIO

Greg Jackson, 2021 Charlottean of the year and father of 3 girls, was a rapper and a sous chef when protests began following the Keith Lamont Scott shooting in 2016. Greg led a group to protest at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department headquarters. A crucial conversation that day changed his trajectory. Shortly after he started the non-profit Heal Charlotte. Through Heal Charlotte, Greg has helped train officers to communicate with the community in volatile situations, created an after-school camp for at-risk youth in his northeast Charlotte neighborhood of Orchard Trace Condominiums, and deployed efforts that focused on revitalizing the area with a holistic approach to the family unit. Serving the community and being a bridge of communication between the community and its officials is what drives him. In his words ``If everybody did a little, no one will have to do a lot``.
