Boo was born in St. Louis and has lived here most of her life. She joined ACD in May 2018 as Director of Development and works to raise funds to support the organization’s legal, community, and media advocacy programming. These funds are on behalf of thousands of St. Louisans who are criminalized for their poverty and race. Before joining ACD’s staff, she worked for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and as the Executive Director of Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design. Boo raised funds and developed programming for nonprofits for 26 years.
