entered the social justice arena in a heartbreaking way. She has firsthand experience with the scourge of gun violence. The New York City native, now 36, lost her son’s father, Jason Ryans, to gun violence. Her son was a toddler at the time.

That and the fact that her parents were founding members of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, set Mallory on a path to activism that saw her become an integral part of the Women’s March On Washington, created in response to the Donald Trump presidency.

While early organizers decried the lack of inclusion of women of color, Mallory was one that answered the call to become part of the historic march, helping to organize and make space for women of color and their unique issues to be addressed.

Mallory had already been working in the trenches of social justice first as executive director of the National Action Network, then an advisor on Vice President Joe Biden’s gun control task force. She also served as part of NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio’s transition team and was an integral part of the NYC Crisis Management System. President Obama’s senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, once called Mallory “a leader of tomorrow” but its fair to say she’s become a leader who is very much contributing in the present.

Now the head of Mallory Consulting, Inc. Mallory will continue her path to serve as an advocate for those impacted by gun violence as well as anyone who seeks civil and human rights and social justice. Despite, or maybe because, of her youth, Mallory is on the front lines and her continued service to the victims of violence and those who are disenfranchised in other areas makes her a woman to watch.

    Is she an activist for the very violence that took her baby’s daddy? Black on black crime? Doubt it, since she was trained by Sharpton

  3. Who, whoa, before we all get weepy for her losing baby daddy to “the scourge of gun violence,” let’s hear the facts. Jason Ryans was a drug dealer in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania. He was killed by other dealers who had accused him of stealing drugs and guns. Ryans carried his own gun.
