Alicia Crosby has always been the type of person to color outside the lines — a trait that comes in handy as the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Center for Inclusivity (CFI). Through her experiences within religious, social service, and community empowerment contexts and her navigation of the world as a queer, black woman, she saw a need to address the spiritual, systemic, and interpersonal harm people experience through the promotion of inclusion and equity for all people through her work. Alicia is proud that CFI is a place where people can bring the fullness of who they are forward and find community that gives them life.
