The National Black Professional Lobbyists Association, started in September 2019, is a 501(c)(6) membership association serving the unique needs of Black professionals in state lobbying and government affairs, offering professional development, networking, and mentorship opportunities to members.
Levi's Grace, Inc. founded in October 2019, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to support expectant women and families that have received a prenatal diagnosis of a life-limiting fetal anomaly, including genetic and chromosomal disorders. Terri and co-founder, Constance Baugh Certion '03, started Levi’s Grace out of shared experiences of enduring stillbirth and infant loss due to neonatal diagnoses of a genetic disorders, and hope to be a resource to families impacted by stillbirth or early infant loss.
