Nneka Akubeze was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, to two incredible parents who taught her the value of faith, education, community, and justice. From the Catholic social justice teachings of her upbringing to her application of the same throughout her life, Nneka discovered her voice at a young age. As a community organizer, Nneka works tirelessly with communities of color to secure collective liberation. Nneka earned her Bachelor of Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011. After graduation, she worked as an Executive Director for the United Council of UW Students in the non-profit sector, endeavoring to improve access and affordability for students in Wisconsin and across the country. In 2016, Nneka examined her role in addressing broader, systemic harms and decided to step back from the front line organizing to pursue her law degree. Nneka attended Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University in Houston, TX graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2019. Shortly after that, she launched her law practice, working in criminal law and immigration while earning her Master of Laws degree in Immigration and Nationality. Nneka works as an Of Counsel attorney with The Sparks Law Firm, handling anything from terroristic threats to federal drug charges. Nneka has years of experience in public narrative coaching and often works to prepare clients for testimony in court. She brings the same passion and dedication she has as an organizer to every case. In her spare time, Nneka enjoys playing her guitar and watching 90s sitcoms.
