Community Partnerships Manager
Hometown: St. Louis, MO
Trevaughn (Tre), a graduate of Loyola University Chicago, is a passionate learner, thinker, and lover of equitable economic development.
Born and raised in North St. Louis County, MO, Tre fell in love with Lead for America's changemaking mission and joined the inaugural Hometown Fellows Cohort. As a Fellow at the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, Tre led economic redevelopment projects in under-resourced municipalities and co-facilitated the distribution of several million dollars in COVID-relief aid to struggling small businesses in the region.
Passionate about transforming our public safety system, Tre also has worked as a Justice for All Fellow at Forward Through Ferguson—a policy advocacy organization with a racial equity lens—where he organized community teach-ins, created community advocacy tools, and coordinated efforts that led to policy wins for police accountability. As the St. Louis Community Partnerships Manager, Tre is expanding LFA's reach and mission across his hometown to add capacity to organizations tackling challenging issues.
Tre enjoys spending time with his family, reading, and practicing the guitar and violin.
