Carla “Bam” Taylor
I am a community organizer committed to changing the world one heart at a time. A true Atlantan from the west side of Atlanta (Zone 1). And though formerly incarcerated, it doesn’t stop me, but drives me to be great on the “assist” to make other people great. Born to be a freedom fighter; because until we’re all free, none of us are free.

Local organization: Women on The Rise
I am a mother (9), grandmother (15), sister, daughter, freedom fighting organizer who is committed to the leadership of women of color. I am directly impacted by the criminal injustice system and I have served a combined 12 years in prison. I fight each day to restore the human, civic and moral dignity of women and girls in and around my community, city, and state. I envision a world where every woman has a safe and healthy environment to thrive and heal.
