After putting her life back together from a traumatic domestic violent relationship and experience, Rochelle Jackson became the Advocate and Organizer for the Welfare Justice Project of Just Harvest in 2001. As a single mom, with the help of many programs, Rochelle put herself through school to obtain both an Associates and Bachelors Degree. She was promoted to Public Policy Advocate at Just Harvest in October 2012. The Welfare Justice Project was born in the aftermath of the 1996 Welfare Reform and sought to educate and empower those affected by the Welfare System to demand changes in the welfare system at all levels of government. Rochelle’s passion for economic justice and elimination of hunger are inspired by her own personal journey as a single mom and help inform the work she does everyday. Rochelle was a part of the first graduating class of the YWCA’s Enterprising Women Business Training Program and launched her own consulting and life coaching business in 2007.
