Ma’at Lands is the Executive Director and Founding School Leader at Rooted School Indianapolis at Eastern Star Church.

“I am grateful and honored to join other education leaders of colors in this movement to build and transform our communities. As a leader of color it is important for me to be in space that allows me to learn and grow in space that values my identity, my values, and my strengths. This opportunity will allow me to continue to build my executive skills in order to be the most effective leader. I am excited about the growth and development that will come as a result of this opportunity as I seek to increase my voice for the voiceless and enhance my community.”
