DR. HENDERSON

SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR ADVOCATE SPEAKER

I am Dr. Angela Henderson

MY STORY

Dr. Angela Henderson is a Social Solutionist, known for her ability to accomplish complex tasks under high pressure conditions. She has dedicated her life to advocating for social and environmental justice, and protecting the human rights of individuals, children, and families. Her commitment to public service blossomed as a teenager with her participation in Peer Helping programs. This passion for public service led Dr. Henderson into a thriving career in social service, where she has held various roles ranging from case work to advocate. Currently, Dr. Henderson is the CEO of Asher Services, where she provides innovative political analysis and research services and solutions. 

In 2012, Dr. Henderson established the Congressional Research Institute for Social Work and Policy (CRISP), along with Dr. Charles E. Lewis, Jr. and former Congressman Edolphus Towns. Dr. Henderson participated in a call to action with the Obama Administration and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2016 to discuss the leadership of the Social Work Community in preserving the Affordable Care Act. In 2018, Dr. Henderson was appointed to serve on the Virginia Board of Conservation and Recreation, further reiterating her commitment to environmental justice. Dr. Henderson has an extreme passion for educating youth, and has mentored countless students in their pursuit as life-long learners and leaders. Dr. Henderson often credits her community for her achievements, stating that there is always “mentoring in the village.”

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

Various research studies have shown how exposure to clean and healthy waterways, vegetation, and built environments can positively effect the mental health and mood of residents. Additional studies have highlighted the linkages between hazardous physical environmental features that include air toxins, metals and chemicals, noise, and natural disasters and mental health conditions. It is critically important to speak out against environmental injustice and discriminatory practices that impact the well-being and life span of neighborhood and community residents.

Join us for rich and thoughtful conversations around the topic of eviction and its effect on the community. The purpose of the discussions is to engage both the public and community leaders in a conversation about the effect of housing insecurity on the region and shed light on the work being done by fair housing, veterans affairs, mental health and social services. Join us in finding real solutions to our housing crisis and in celebrating the power of books to create a stronger community.
