My Story
Lonnie Headshot.jpg

I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and am now proud to call Janesville, WI home. I have a passion and a need to help others, most specifically in the areas of racial inequality and injustices.

Being raised in the streets of Chicago, I lived the racial inequality and injustices everyday. My life experiences have lead me to my current passion as a community activist, following in the footsteps of my ancestors.


My outreach has lead to the following:

  • Former Chairman of the African American Liaison Advisory Committee for Janesville Police Department

  • Crimestoppers of Janesville and Rock County Committee Member

  • Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee for Rock County

  • CASA of Rock County Volunteer

  • Janesville Multi-Cultural Teacher Scholarship Board

  • Current Chair of Janesville Mobilizing 4 Change

  • Member of Beloit Chapter of NAACP; set on their Criminal Justice Committee

  • Set on Justice Overcoming Borders (JOB)

My Mission

To promote positive outcomes for youth through mentoring and leadership.
