Anthony started his career as an AmeriCorps Volunteer in La Crosse, WI, where he learned the importance and impact of community service. Since that start, he has accumulated an eclectic assortment of experiences including (but not limited to) LGBT youth development, volunteer recruitment / retention, and financial awareness training. He has used these experiences to help support individuals and communities in a more holistic manner. Anthony has a Bachelor of Science in social work from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. While at UW–Milwaukee, Anthony was a leader in LGBT issues both in Student Government as well as Student Life at the LGBT Resource Center.
After several years in NYC working in theatre and dance, Kofi is back in Milwaukee. Since the theatre and dance communities were so deeply affected by the AIDS epidemic, he has seen firsthand the need for HIV prevention. At that time, he volunteered for the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and Equity Fights AIDS as well as other organizations actively working for social justice. It was a natural progression for him to start working in HIV prevention and LGBT health promotion once he was back in Milwaukee. If you’re looking for a smile, ask him about his relationship to a certain famous pig.
