Yolanda Perkins

Yolanda Perkins is the Data and VAN Administrative Manager/Director of the Data and Organizing Fellowship at Wisconsin Voices. Yolanda was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After years of bad decision making and a lot of self reflection, Yolanda finally made up her mind to want something different. Not even knowing what that would look like, the unknown had to be better. Yolanda started volunteering and learned the words to describe her struggles. She now passes on the structure of investment in the ladder of greater, and trains other POC to create, build and develop strategies to more effectively organize their communities, integrate data and tech tools and tactics, and model and train on leadership development, all while keeping intentional focus on cultural adjustments and relational base building. Yolanda loves data and identifies with its unlimited potential, quality, effectiveness and uniqueness!
