Rev. Dawn Riley Duval is a minister, mother and activist. In fighting for equality, justice and opportunities for all, last year Rev. Dawn started her own business called “Justice Unleashed LLC.” As a consultant she works with congregations and faith organizations in doing social justice more intentionally and deeply. Recently, during the 2012 Summer of Voter Suppression when states were passing laws that made it more difficult for African Americans and Latinos to vote, God gave Rev. Dawn a vision for multi-faith voter engagement work called “Let My People Vote.” Let My People vote is led by historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and, with the help of PICO Network which has embraced Let My People Vote as a national program during the 2014 election cycle, Let My People Vote builds Congregation Voting Teams to increase power and political representation that will help develop safe, sacred and just communities nationwide.
During the past 15 years, Rev. Dawn has worked as a newspaper reporter, youth pastor, community organizer, campaign manager, and the Social Justice Minister at Shorter Community A.M.E. Church in Denver, Colorado. Her passion for connecting faith with doing social transformation was ignited by the life work of four change agents – her parents (Debbie and Darrell), Ms. Fannie Lou Hamer, and Jesus . Academically, Rev. Dawn has a Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, a Master’s Degree in Print Journalism from CU-Boulder, a Master of Divinity Degree from Vanderbilt Divinity School, and she is currently earning a Doctoral Degree in Ministry at Chicago Theological Seminary.
