Our guest is Mr. Phillip Agnew, Executive Director of Dream Defenders in Florida.

Phillip Agenew is a native of Chicago, IL, and a 2008 graduate of Florida A&M University's School of Business and Industry.

While attending the University he served as Student Body President, a member of the University Board of Trustees and Faculty Senate.

His life was changed when he became an organizer with the Student Coalition for Justice: a cadre of students from Florida A&M University, Florida State University, and
Tallahassee Community College angered by the murder of Martin Lee Anderson in a Florida Youth Boot Camp.

After four years in Charlotte, NC working in Sales, he returned to Florida to work as Executive Director with the Dream Defenders, a network of black, brown, and allied youth across the State of Florida fighting for equal rights and education.
