Perata Bradley has deep roots in the community and has long been dedicated to serving it.
I am a sixth-generation legacy resident of Fourth Ward Freedmen’s Town. I grew up in the heart of downtown in the Fourth Ward. My neighborhood taught me many things and early on I learned to be tough, creative and very much neighborly and respectful of others. Being close to downtown made me no stranger to diversity. Some of my fondest childhood memories include roaming through downtown stores, underground tunnels and being allowed in the Hyatt Regency to swim. I grew up walking and venturing out in the Montrose, River Oaks communities. My grandmother took us thrift shopping at Value Village in the Heights.
I am a proud product of Gregory Lincoln Education Center, James D Ryan, Jack Yates High School and Houston Livestock and Rodeo Scholar 2003. I studied at University of Texas at Austin and graduated cum laude at the University of Houston with a B.A in Art and certification in Nonprofit Leadership. I have 10 years of experience in the Nonprofit sector as a community health consultant with experience engaging, mobilizing and uniting disadvantaged communities, through art, history, nature, and preservation. I enjoy writing, gardening, and investing in communities. Future plans include economic development and affordable housing development. Many consider me as an activist, mental and physical health advocate, educator, and creative---but I consider myself to be a people preserver-- dedicated to educating and bringing progress to communities.
