HAVE A GREATER IMPACT WITH K.BILLY PUSH
All you need is a little push!
Founder & Social Impact Consultant
Hi there! I'm Kawanza Billy, a facilitator, social impact consultant, and storyteller with over a decade of experience leading community-centered initiatives. I've been organizing for change since I was a child, and my advocacy career officially began in Southeast Queens, Harlem, and Brooklyn, where I served as an outreach coordinator for The Public Advocate of New York. I graduated from the City University of NY, John Jay College, with a degree in Political Science with a concentration in Community and Urban Affairs.
My passion for education and community engagement eventually led me to move to Washington, DC. In the nation's capital, I had the opportunity to work in various roles at education companies and nonprofits. Here, I was introduced to emergent strategy, liberatory design, and popular education techniques and tools that profoundly influenced my work.
I am the proud founder of K.Billy Push. I direct youth advocacy programs, coordinate leadership fellowships, build and facilitate community engagement initiatives, and assist companies in addressing essential questions about education, environmental justice, and access to emerging markets. Additionally, I serve as the National Advocacy Chair for the National Urban League Young Professionals, advocating for economic empowerment, civil rights, and social justice.
My dedication to community engagement is reflected in my accomplishments, which include designing culturally inclusive advocacy events, developing a leadership curriculum that supports over 100 after-school sites, leading retreats for community-based organizations, and training more than 250 community leaders in the Metro DC area.
When I'm not facilitating or designing sustainable solutions, I enjoy creating nutritious and delicious recipes, producing cultural content, and practicing the art of nap ministry. With my knowledge and experience, I strive to be a force for change, inspiring and empowering others to shine their light.
What I do? Who I do it for?
K. Billy Push is here to help you make an impact! Utilizing my resources and network, I create and improve social impact initiatives. Through thought partnership, stakeholder engagement, program development, and evaluation, I support clients in effectively sharing campaigns, information, programs, and training.
I embrace a community-centered approach to social impact, believing that meaningful progress is achieved by working together. I'm committed to creating sustainable change and empowering people through equitable and transformative social solutions.
Let me give you a little push!

"Kawanza is a great person with great energy. She is always open to listening to your ideas and creating opportunities and possibilities to have your ideas and visions turn out. For example, I came to her with an idea about doing an interview to create exposure for my non-profit Coins for Humanity and she created an opportunity for that interview to happen! She is very vocal about what it takes to be successful. Most importantly, she's a reminder that we have the power to create the lives that we want to see for ourselves."

"The best word to describe Kawanza Billy is LEADERSHIP. I attended a vision board party a friend of mine invited me to. The moment I sat down, I heard this woman speak about how impactful vision boards can be. She talked about choice. I asked, are you a coach? She said yes. She certainly was, and is. Her name is Kawanza, and her coaching helped me map out the vision I had for my life at the time. I wanted and needed that. I am so thankful for my first time experience with Kawanza, and every time I've met her since then has been extraordinary. She pays attention, and always remembers your last conversation. Her leadership had certainly left a lasting impression with me."

Kawanza is an exceptional social impact leader and strategist. I had the pleasure to work alongside her, while serving as President of a Washington DC based non-profit executive. Her agility, ingenuity and strategic thinking, helped propel our organization and set the foundation for our growth, impact and philanthropic trajectory.
