Biography

Aeiramique Glass Blake known to most as Meeka, has served as a policy director, community organizer, conflict resolution facilitator, and community cohesion and race & equity consultant, as well as being one of the leading restorative justice practitioners in San Diego County. Aeiramique has more than a decade of experience in supervising and managing programs as well as pushing for policies that have produced great outcomes and fostered genuine transformative change. She currently serves multiple advisory boards representing communities of color such as the San Diego Chief of Police Board of Advisors, the City Attorney's Advisory Board, and the Chief of Probation Advisory Board, as well as other boards and coalitions. She has worked to keep both individuals and systems equitable, transparent, and accountable.

Aeiramique works with community leaders, clergy, students, school officials, law enforcement, public officials, and those closest to the pain to create sustainable, effective change that helps those in need, particularly the most vulnerable populations and communities of color. She is a leader on issues pertaining to racial and social equity, police misconduct, police practices, policy change, as well as new legislation. She has conducted training and presentations throughout California and surrounding areas on several topics pertaining to racial justice, equity, and reimagined public safety. Aeiramique is a consultant and advisor to law enforcement and public officials relating to community engagement, race relations, and strategies that promote and implement justice, equity, and equality in the community and the most impacted populations. She is oftentimes a rapid responder to community crisis issues when violence, shootings, police harassment and brutality, and other issues arise within the community. Earlier this year, she was celebrated as a Phenomenal Woman by the San Diego Union-Tribune and the Women Museum of California for her achievement in advocacy and empowerment. Her character, reputation in the community, and proven track record & experience make her exactly who is needed for such a time as this.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Poltics should be about equitible poilicys that work for all people. To put people over profits & political parties. We need people in power who are connected to the community who uplift the voices  of the voters and those whose voices have been silenced and suppressed. We need to reimagine what are political infrastructure. If we began to reform existing systems, and create a  proactive systemic infrastructure that creates a better quality  of life for everyone, especially those in underserved  communities. Right now in California , we are divided and we need a leader that leads with love, and makes unity and awareness of intersectionality and the need for equity the foundation of their fight for justice. We need to build equity in all the policy passed. 

JUSTICE + EQUITY + ACCOUNTABILITY = UNITY
