SUPPORT OUR CAUSE

Yinka's story is an inspiring American dream come true. Yinka immigrated from Lagos, Nigeria to the U.S. at the age of seven; became a U.S. citizen; earned an appointment to and graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point; and served as a combat arms U.S. Army officer in tank units in two back-to-back overseas deployments to Kuwait--the second deployment in response to 9/11. Washington University Law School brought Yinka to Missouri. He worked in private practice at a global law firm, followed by service as a state prosecutor before serving as a senior VP at United Way. He then led as the second executive director of the nonprofit founded by the Ferguson Commission, Forward Through Ferguson.
