Staff

The FBC Staff plans and executes all of the organization’s programming and develops relationships with Coalition Members and other key constituents.

Niciah MuJahid

Coalition Director

“Wisdom is Knowledge applied with Mercy.”

Niciah Mujahid is an award-winning activist, scholar, writer, and educator, and a devoted wife and mother. A 4th generation Washingtonian, she graduated from The Howard University’s School of Divinity with a Master’s in Social Justice and Ethics, after earning a Bachelor’s in Political Science, and Africana Studies from the University of Notre Dame.

Before joining FBC, her career focus was at the intersection of Black healing and multi-level policy. In 2017, she founded an organizational space that works to normalize spiritual and holistic wellness for Black and indigenous people as the foundation for political sovereignty and liberation. She now works as the Campaign Manager at FBC, reallocating resources toward the underserved and historically oppressed in DC.

Niciah is a true dreamer-Pisces and works to incorporate intentional imagining, play, and ritual in her work toward dismantling systems and building new ones in their place. She is a mama of two girls and wife to an amazing and supportive movement lawyer. When not working, she’s likely facilitating healing spaces on the Soufside, studying religion, meditating, finger painting with a toddler or two, or sitting beside the Anacostia River.

Frankie Seabron

Budget Advocacy Organizer

Frankie Seabron is the Budget Advocacy Organizer for the Fair Budget Coalition. She is an educator, digital content creator, activist and community organizer. As a 3rd generation Washingtonian and mother of two she has a heart for the community and believes in building a better world, free of imperialism, white supremacy and patriarchal violence. She’s spearheaded multiple campaigns, including: the “WMATA Vote No” campaign, a 10-day digital campaign that demanded the Metro Board of Directors vote “NO” on the expansion of police power public transportation services; the “Boycott Nellies” campaign which brought to light issues of gentrification, created a safe space for black LGBTQ folks in DC, and held establishments accountable for anti-black behaviors; and the“Vote Yes on 2” campaign which sought to reimagine what public safety looks like through the creation of a regulatory department in Minneapolis.

Prior to finding her way to community work she was a classroom teacher, and spent the last several years educating in DC Public Charter Schools. She has also worked in the nonprofit sector, specifically with high and at-risk DC youth and under/uninsured adults. Through her work she aspires to build a more equitable DC by creating avenues for access to resources for the most marginalized in our communities.

Katherine Landfield

Advocacy Coordinator

Katharine Landfield is an economic and racial justice advocate with decades of experience in service to families, community strengthening, policy change, and direct clinical services. In the past several years she has been involved in various movements for workers’ rights and economic empowerment and for tax justice.

 

Being the daughter of a refugee with a trauma history shaped Katharine’s world view, character, and choice of profession. As a school social worker, Katharine saw firsthand the damaging effects of community disinvestment and exclusionary policies. Children do well when their families are doing well; families do well when their communities are doing well. DC cannot flourish if we continue to freeze Black and brown workers out of opportunity and power.

 

Katharine is the mother of two amazing young men, loves to hike with her husband and friends in Rock Creek Park, and hopes to be a badass for equity in old age. Since her childhood one block over the DC boundary in Maryland, she has lived in DC, Vietnam, and Turkey. She holds a bachelor’s degree in religion, a master’s in social work, and a master’s in policy leadership.
