Syda Segovia Taylor—a community development and social justice advocate—has worked with high-profile non-profit organizations for the last two decades, bringing resources to black and Latino communities. Taylor exposes the racism, gentrification and redlining that has led to two disparate Chicago realities—one filled with prosperity and opportunity, and the other filled with despair, pain and trauma. To heal the illnesses of her community, Taylor has brought a range of concerned organizations together to address racism, violence and mental health, applying the Baha'i teachings to capacity-building for individuals, organizations and institutions in her neighborhood.
