Newman Civic Fellow
Marcus Stubbs, a student in Bellarmine University’s Doctor of Philosophy in Education and Social Change program, is a force of positive energy fueled by his desire to help others. Marcus’ entire focus is community-based work. He is connected to a web of organizations within Louisville, KY and brings people and organizations together to remove barriers to success for marginalized people in the community. Marcus recently mobilized volunteers throughout the city to promote voter awareness, registration, and empowerment. Marcus is also strongly passionate about food insecurity, which is reflected by his current work with the Dare to Care Mobile Market. Food insecurity is both a root cause, and an effect of, a multitude of societal issues and Marcus is working at the “boots on the ground level” to ensure healthy foods for an equitable price are within reach, and to empower marginalized communities.
