Detroit, Michigan

Bernita Bradley is a mother of two, a 24-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter. She is a long-time advocate for Detroit parents and students. She served as AmeriCorps/AmeriCorps Vista for two terms. Her passion is ensuring that the whole child is catered to in every village and that parents have a voice in the ever changing education landscape of the city. She serves as community engagement manager for Enroll Detroit and Owner of The Village PCL.

In doing this work, she realized the need to speak from the heart as a parent who knows all to well the after effects of bullying, being pushed out, unstable schools and working with some of the best educators the city has seen.

She blogs at Detroit School Talk.
