Davere Godfrey

Southern Program Director

Davere Godfrey leads JMA’s Southern Program in building coalitions to improve the lives of Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia residents through sustainable job creation, leading research initiatives, and introducing policies that promote transparency around tax incentives for corporations. Prior to joining JMA, Davere spent 15 years with Service Employees International Union (SEIU), where he directed various campaigns in the health and public sector that served as a catalyst for working families to achieve social and economic justice on the job and communities in which they live. After years of organizing unions and social justice initiatives across the U.S., he committed to bringing the strategies and experience he gained to the South to make progressive change for people of color.
