Tai Harden-Moore is dedicated to being a voice for underserved communities. While earning her Juris Doctor degree from Florida A&M University College of Law, Tai served as the Lieutenant Governor for Non-Traditional Students for the American Bar Association Law Student Division, which afforded her the opportunity to work with and be an advocate for underserved student populations, particularly students of color, women, LGBTQ students, and part-time law students in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Puerto Rico. Since graduating from law school, Tai has demonstrated her commitment to social and economic justice and to racial equity. From her service on local nonprofit boards to articles published by the Skanner News, Black Commentator, African American Times, and Huffington Post, Tai has chosen to use her voice to effect change in our community.
