a proud seattle voice
Dana actively works with and in the community to create progress around outdated laws and unfair practices that keep minority business owners in a ‘less than’ position while simultaneously donating time and resources to make lasting impact in her neighborhoods.
“I have compassion for those truly suffering.
I’ve worked with each resident on a case by case basis. However, everything my parents fought for, picketed banks to get funding for, scraped by, and sacriﬁced to create a legacy, is at risk of being eliminated.
The Pandemic and weak leadership in the City Council with their litany of
new laws protecting these “bad actors” has us (aka: landlords)
operating with our hands cuffed. That’s what I’m working to change."
what others have to say
Dana’s new book reveals the formula for creating generational wealth while taking the reader through a dark humor roller coaster ride filled with human experiences everyone can relate to having.
“When people knock what is happening…
I say ‘Don’t knock it, be a part of it.’”
