“When I wrote the nation’s first Parent Empowerment Act, I firmly believed that parents should be the architects of their own children’s educational futures. When I met Gwen Samuel I saw she personifies the very essence of the meaning of parent empowerment itself. Her voice is a voice for us all and I am honored to work alongside her.”
Mona Davids is an activist who gets it done. Her ability to communicate a message and bring people together separate her from most. It is easy to support a cause. It is far different to strike fear into the hearts of those who oppose your cause and inspire those who share it. Mona Davids was essential in the establishment of our charter school in Harlem and the residual impact of her work helped us to get another charter school approved in the Bronx.
I have worked with Gwen Samuel in both educational and advocacy environments. If you are serious about transforming the education landscape for teachers, students and parents, this workshop series is a must have.
When I was the Political and Legislative Director of the Transport Workers Union and created Transit Forward the only advocacy organization made of Transit Riders and Workers, Mona Davids was the key person in bringing all parties together and created our communications.
Mona created the logo, branding and website for the campaign. She managed the campaign’s social media accounts and engaged the media to publicize our campaign and increase awareness of the transportation service cuts and safety issues for our members. She worked closely with my team attending meetings with our coalition of community-based organizations, elected officials, transit advocates and residents throughout the five boroughs to mobilize support to reverse MTA service cuts to communities throughout the city.
When I was President and Political Director, for Metallic Lathers Local 46 in New York City, Mona Davids was my go-to person to get a website or communications project done. I could always depend on her to be expeditious; regarding the turn-around time to complete a project. She always worked fast, efficiently, and with the utmost standard of excellence.
When I wanted professional, top-notch work done, Mona could always be trusted to produce on that level; with great attention to detail.
I would highly recommend Mona Davids. Her commitment to professionalism and integrity is second-to-none.
