Welcome, Ebony Adedayo, City’s new ReCAST program manager

Ebony Adedayo has joined the City Coordinator’s Equity and Inclusion team as the City’s ReCAST program manager.

The new ReCAST program helps promote resiliency and equity among communities that have faced trauma due to civil unrest connected to law enforcement issues. ReCAST stands for Resiliency in Communities After Stress and Trauma. The program will help build the capacity of community partners working with high-risk families facing stress from traumatic events. It will also bolster the City’s efforts to train staff members who are the first point of contact for the community and help coordinate and align the work of the City and community organizations.

Before joining the City, she was the Communications and Capacity Building Manager at Alliance for Metropolitan Stability. In that role, she worked on City topics including transformative equitable development and the North Minneapolis Greenway.

Additionally, Adedayo is a parish pastor and is passionate about the intersection of racial justice and faith. She is also a published author.
