Treva Reid is an overcomer, resilient single mother, and community builder. She was raised in a family of educators, entrepreneurs, civil servants, and laborers with a deep respect for hard work. Treva’s passion to serve stems from growing up in a large civically-engaged family where her great-grandmother’s political activism informed their values. As a young single mother in college working multiple jobs, she leveraged strengths from her upbringing to provide for her daughter and graduate from Hampton University.
Treva has a tenacious determination to overcome seemingly impossible situations. Her personal experience with childhood trauma, gun violence, intimate partner abuse, poverty, and housing instability motivates her passion to fight for justice and challenge unfair practices.
