Imani Marshall is a proud Chicago native and new San Diegan. Both places have taught her about the intersection of identity, power, health and place that she studied as a Political Science major at Amherst College. Before Mid-City CAN, as a Bill Emerson Nation Hunger Fellow, Imani developed programs and conducted research to improve low-income mothers’ access to breastfeeding support and healthy foods and WIC’s national participation and retention rates. Now, as Mid-City CAN’s Evaluation and Learning Analyst, Imani applies her evaluation skills to support Mid-City CAN's programs, organizing, and advocacy. She hopes her work will support residents leading positive change in City Heights. After work you can find Imani sketching, nurturing her burgeoning fascination with anime and Harry Potter or exploring San Diego.
