Why she does it: “We really wanted to find ways to meaningfully impact the people of this community,” said Davis, who works as a program coordinator at private schools Stuart Hall and Convent of the Sacred Heart. “Mo Magic started as a way to build the community and get folks together.”

The impact: According to Davis, it was one of the safest summers in recent history in the Western Addition. “It’s so important to make the residents of this community feel empowered, and that’s what Mo Magic is all about.
