Durrel K. Douglas
Durrel grew up in Houston's "South Park" neighborhood where he saw firsthand the systemic inequity of our society's infrastructure, education system, and criminal justice system.
After a 5-year stint as a prison guard, he dedicated the remainder of his life toward creating a world where fewer people who came from neighborhoods like his ended up behind bars.
Durrel has previously served as Chair of the Houston NAACP Community Coordination Committee, on the Board of Directors for the League of Women Voters-Houston, was a 2013 LWV Rising Star, received the 2017 Black Love Matters award from SEIU Afram-Washington, 40 under 40 Politicos of Houston in 2015 and the 2017 Community Trailblazer Award at the Teamsters National MLK Day Gala.
Durrel has guest lectured at University of Houston, University of Texas, Jackson State University, and Howard University.
He currently lives in Houston where his hobbies include learning to play the upright bass, eating soul food, laughing with friends, and hosting a bi-weekly podcast.
