Chinua Rhodes
Board of Education Member, Area 5

Hi, I’m Chinua Rhodes. I’m a Father of 5, a Community Organizer, and your Trustee. I grew up right here in South Sacramento, and I’m a product of Sac City Schools. While in high school, my father, who organized for Pico California, showed me that collective effort for change is possible and that everyday working people are the key to the city’s success and well-being. These lessons led me to coordinate programs and grants supporting thousands of Sacramento youth and families and organizing around housing and youth justice initiatives.
