Jacob Mack-Boll

Real name: 
Eastern Kentucky Organizer

Jacob is an Organizer working in eastern Kentucky, living in Letcher County. His people are from Lancaster, Pennsylvania where he first became politicized and was introduced to organizing as a young person grappling with how to respond to the Iraq war. From there he could never quite go back, and has been grateful to learn from incredible groups working towards change for everything from jail expansion to LGBTQ issues in faith communities, from mountaintop removal to militarism, and wage theft to local foods. Jacob graduated from Eastern Mennonite University with a degree in Peacebuilding and Development. Jacob joined the team at KFTC after several rewarding years spent working at the Hindman Settlement School.
