Board Member

Ardmore native, Muneera Walker, is a social activist who spent
the last decade representing community members for justice and
racial equity. Much of her work is done within the Lower Merion
School District, where she serves as Community Liaison for
South Ardmore. While focusing mainly on racial injustice, she is a
champion for all students. Her work with LMSD includes serving
on the Achievement Imperative Task Force, an oversight
committee for the development and implementation of best
practices. Ms. Walker helped develop the current Strategic Plan,
with emphasis on inclusion.

With the support of others, Muneera developed a unique student
lead forum to help parents understand the true dynamics of race
relations among the student body, and in their daily encounters
with teachers and administration. She directed a brief video, We
are Lower Merion, to expose more recent conditions of race in
LMSD. At Villanova University, Ms. Walker addressed PA College
and University Deans to encourage the implementation of
diversity training and programming as a graduation prerequisite
for students in Education. These and other endeavors continue to
help shape the current efforts of local educators and
administrators.

In addition to her work with LMSD, Muneera co-leads the
Ardmore Political Club and serves as a Community Stakeholder
on the Lower Merion Counseling and Mobile Services Advisory
Board, to bridge community needs with services offered.

Ms. Walker is now concentrating on her newly formed grassroots
effort, Neighbors Helping Neighbors on the Main Line, which
provides food and necessities to families in need; stemming from
the Covid-19 pandemic. This nonprofit has quickly expanded to
provide further assistance such as child immunizations, clothing,
increased awareness of government program offers and the
addition of multi-level educational platforms developed to
immediately service the students of Lower Merion Township and
beyond. NHH is designed to break the barriers of racial injustice
and is intended to become a lasting oversight and aid to healing
of local residents of all decent.
