Kayla Mallett Bacote, Philanthropic Program Offficer

Kayla Mallett Bacote (she/her) is the daughter of Marcella, granddaughter of Inez and Janie, and great-granddaughter of Etta, Moriah, Dahlia, and Corena.  Her praxis is rooted in the spirit of collectivism, affirmation, shared resources, self-determination,  and jubilee – a reflection of  the practices espoused by her Grandmother Inez and other folks during her youth in rural South Carolina. She is committed to building a world  where communities, especially those which have been historically harmed by systems of oppression, collectively thrive and advance towards liberation.

Kayla’s experiences include electoral and issue organizing, legislative advocacy, policy review, and non-profit program management. Her belief is Black women deserve to feel safe, seen, supported … and celebrated!
