Dakota is a Black & Indigenous (Oneida Nation & Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe) man, and uses he/him/his pronouns. He was born and still lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - the state with the best coast, which is the fresh coast! Dakota comes to this work with a background in financial management and organizational operations, from experience he gained during his time as student organizer and Vice President with the United Council of UW Students back in 2012. Now currently the founding Executive Director of Leaders Igniting Transformation (LIT), he built the idea of a powerhouse Black & Brown organizing group into reality by growing LIT from a city based organization into a state house organization with 20+ staff members. In his free time, you’ll find Dakota on a walk by the freshest coast in the world or on a bike ride looking for the best custard.
