My activism and service to the community extends both in Chicago and beyond.
In the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd in 2020, I led efforts in his community and throughout the 16th District to restore damaged businesses in the wake of looting, which occurred outside the protests. I spoke with local businesses while personally leading cleanup efforts and follow up with businesses to ensure the businesses remained operational.
During Thanksgiving in 2016, I visited Standing Rock, North Dakota for four days to support and the water protectors protesting against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
From January, 2016 to May, 2016, my younger brother Nathaniel Anthony Williams, best friend, Chase Stewart, and I gathered over twenty-five volunteers over the course of four trips to aid the people of Flint, Michigan during the ongoing water crisis. Flint, Michigan, and many other oft-mentioned areas of the country, continue to face man-made disastrous, catastrophic, and unimaginable tragedies affecting their quality of life.
In November 2015, I protested alongside other concerned activists after the killing of LaQuan McDonald. I helped lead an economic protest on Black Friday in front of the Apple store on Chicago's Magnificent Mile. I articulated the concerns of his fellow protestors leading to the Apple store to eventual close peacefully for the day.
