Jamie Richards-Linton (she/her/hers) has demonstrated experience as an advocate, a visionary, and an implementer. Jamie’s dedication to making the world a better place for underserved communities has been the driving force behind her work for immigrant rights, racial justice and within the labor movement.

You may not know her name, but you know her results. Jamie prides herself on being a dedicated worker bee with a flair for envisioning and executing first-of-their-kind organizations and spaces that support marginalized communities. She is especially proud that it is her vision in 2014 and determination to actualize it that led to the founding of the UndocuBlack Network in January 2016. UndocuBlack is a first of its kind organization and is the largest undocumented Black led immigrant rights organization. It is a multigenerational network of formerly and currently undocumented Black people that fosters community, facilitates access to resources, and advocates to transform the realities of their people. She also served as UndocuBlack’s Co-chair for three years. As part of the founding governance body, Jamie spearheaded the development of finances, operations and sustainable fundraising for UBN. 

She is also a member of the planning committee for Power Rising–an intergenerational power force of Black women from various sectors working to better the lives of their communities. Power Rising’s summit hosts more than 1,000 Black women, including the late Cicely Tyson, Vice President Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, and many more notable women.

She is the principal and owner of JRL Consulting, where she utilizes her over ten years of experience in fundraising, organizational development, conference planning, and project management to serve and assist her clients to achieve their goals.
