Introduction by/invitation to speak by Christine Bradley.
Bio: A graduate of Wellesley College and Purdue University, Joy calls Nashville home, but hails from both Michigan and Pennsylvania. She brings to the table a wealth of leader-ship experience within the music and film business, as well as bilingual skill sets which she uses to build bridges amongst people of all backgrounds, both racially and socio-economically.
In August of 2019, Joy, as a first time candidate, was elected to the Nashville Metro Council as the Councilwoman for District 32 in Antioch, TN. In addition to serv-ing District 32, she is the Chair of the Metro Council Women’s Caucus and Library, and Vice Chair of the Human Services Committee. A licensed minister, Joy also serves as the Ambassador of Kingdom Partnerships for Spirit and Truth Believers Fellowship, where she connects the church with community organizations that are committed to serving those most in need.
Since joining the Metro Council, Joy has been instrumental in advocating for not only District 32, but the entirety of Nashville. Some of the issues she has legislated or co-sponsored include: mandating masks for essential workers at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, requiring accountability for discriminatory practices Metro De-partment leaders (Metro Arts), supporting protections for historic music venues (Ex-it/In), and most recently, the passage of a 6 month pilot for license plate readers to be installed throughout Davidson County.
Her current community involvement includes serving on the following boards and committees: the Advisory Board for The Salvation Army, Board Chair for The Hope Clinic and the Advisory Council of the Black Cultural Center at Vanderbilt University. Joy is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sorority, Inc., The Links, Incorporated, Hendersonville Area chapter and a graduate of Emerge Tennessee. She believes that being an agent of change is a responsibility of the utmost importance.
