The Education Advocate with Michael Phillips

Michael is a Social Entrepreneur, Education Advocate, Purpose Agent, and Faith Leader creating positive change in developing social impact initiatives to solve community-based and systemic problems. 

He is the appointed Chairman of Board for 50CAN, the leading education policy advocacy organization in the US, and he serves as a board member of KuriosEd, a non-profit, educational organization created by faith-based leaders primarily focused on servicing Black Communities.

His story is the epitome of the necessity of advocacy, resources, and opportunities, for young, underprivileged students. After losing a parent, getting in a life-threatening car accident, and having his college scholarship revoked, he turned to sell drugs to make ends meet. After his house was raided and he was arrested, a judge gave him the opportunity to go to college rather than complete his 30-year sentence in prison if found guilty. He unhesitatingly chose to go to college, which completely turned his life around.

Once he discovered that education was the path to becoming who he was created to be, he found his purpose and broke the school-to-prison pipeline that captures massive numbers of children who are trapped by their environment, policies, and community culture.
