“When we were asked to accommodate her swearing-in, we were deeply moved. It signals to us and to the population we serve, her alignment with our mission. Kanika will be another active voice in the State House to help move us towards fulfilling the Bridge II Sports Vision.” said David Smith, BIIS Director of Programs.
Prior to starting at Bridge II Sports, David managed a Community Center in Winston-Salem’s Southeast Ward. While there, Kanika Brown, a prominent community leader in Winston-Salem provided David invaluable support in revitalizing a historically neglected facility. When Ms. Brown heard about David’s new position she immediately felt moved by the mission of Bridge II Sports – especially the EveryBODYPlaysNC school initiative. As a firm believer in equal access for all and her strong commitment to serve as an advocate for marginalized groups, she is eager to make her voice heard on the state level to create change for people with disabilities.
