Regina Elmi

Community Leadership Team

Regina is a co-founder of the Somali Parents Education Board and believes the biggest role in this world is being a parent. She considers it a privilege to be working with parents like her every day and learning from them. Regina believes if we want to close the opportunity gap, parents and youth must be involved in conversations about systematic racism. She is a champion of community leadership and placing parents in leadership roles so they are the ones advocating for our children. Her favorite place in the Road Map Project region is Tukwila because it is amazing to see her community walking around the Bakaro Mall area in their traditional clothes and to see elders sitting down to drink tea together in the shops.
