Damon Drake

Damon Drake founded We Resolve to support loved ones, their families, and communities as they go through the criminal punishment system, tipping the scales toward community healing.

Damon has worked in numerous capacities throughout his professional career: employment counselor, policy advocate, community engagement liaison, and martial arts instructor. Damon Drake is a community-oriented professional who has worked tirelessly to confront systems that produce inequity, poverty, disparities in employment, and mass incarceration. 

The Center for Community Engaged Learning is deeply grateful for the work of healing and liberation that Brother Damon and We Resolve have committed to, and moved by the example they set for us all of love in action.
