Omari strongly believes in the power of collective action to bring about positive change and make a difference in one’s community. He enjoys supporting organizations cultivate relationships with their communities to deepen their impact, as well as helping them to operate more efficiently and effectively toward achieving their critical missions.
Prior to joining the Brooklyn Community Pride Center, Omari was a consultant with CCS Fundraising, a strategic nonprofit fundraising firm. There, he worked with a range of clients, including the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, The Trevor Project, and Saint Barnabas Medical Center (NJ) to help them raise their sights and meet their ambitious fundraising goals.
Before CCS, Omari worked in the education sector. As a Teach for America Corps Member, he taught middle school special education at a charter school in Brownsville, Brooklyn. He later served as the Education Manager at a school in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, where he worked with families and teachers to develop robust, individualized education plans for struggling students.
Omari lives in Brooklyn with his partner, Jacob, and their two cats, Langston and Zora.
