Governing Board Member, Phoenix Union High School District
Stanford Prescott serves as a Governing Board Member for the Phoenix Union High School District. Professionally, he works as a community engagement coordinator for a refugee resettlement agency. Stanford has spent multiple years as a community organizer and political advocate, including as a staff member of Center for Neighborhood Leadership for two years. Stanford is a graduate of Arizona State University and South Mountain High School. As a Phoenix native, Stanford remembers from his youth how the government would quickly respond to issues in the rich neighborhoods but slowly respond to issues in our working class neighborhoods, or never respond at all. Stanford believes that we need new leaders, especially leaders of color, to end inequalities in our systems. For this reason, Stanford believes in CNL because CNL creates the space for new leaders of color to fight for progressive policy.
