Samantha Jackson

WEBMASTER

Samantha Jackson has twenty years of experience in the non-profit sector and movement building. Her experience in sales/negotiation and Human Resources comes from working for Choice Point (now LexisNexis Risk Solutions) and Habitat for Humanity International, respectively. She also owned her own wedding planning business for fifteen years.

Through multiple activism channels and protest strategies, Samantha has raised awareness about racial injustice, voting rights, economic injustice, 2SLGBTQIA+ rights, reproductive injustice, health care, food security, climate equity, etc. She has worked with People’s Action, Dream Defenders, Pantsuit Nation, NAACP, Women’s March, MoveOn, and several progressive political campaigns, including Andrew Gillum for Florida Governor.

Samantha believes that content in all its forms has the power to spread ideas, build communities, and engage and delight people. She has experience working with various programs and platforms, and she is adept at using tools such as Google Analytics.

Samantha’s talents are currently put to use at Fellowship of Reconciliation USA, where she handles web design. Her responsibilities involve building visual content and multimedia strategies.

A fundamental tenet of Samantha’s activism is her faith as a Christian (Episcopalian). A deep believer in God, she is grounded in the moral teachings of Jesus, and she’s committed to progressive values. In her view, Jesus would want us to be democratic, inclusive, and just. She prays for the courage to be a social activist like Jesus when she looks around and sees rising poverty and inequality, sexism, racism, religious persecution, and environmental destruction.

Samantha has lived in Pensacola her entire life. She graduated from Bucknell University with a B.A. in Political Science and History with a minor in Religion. She is an avid listener of boybands, especially New Kids on the Block; writes for Medium; enjoys country music; travels worldwide; keeps up with the latest beauty and fashion trends on YouTube; and spends time with her family and cats, Zara and Cookie. One of her greatest inspirations is her 103-year-old grandmother.
