DANIA DAVY, ESQ.

DEPUTY DIRECTOR

Dania was born in Jamaica and grew up in Florida. Both cultures had a profound impact on her understanding of racial justice, colonization, and institutional oppression. She is the proud mother of her beloved daughter, an attorney, and community health advocate.


After double concentrating in Community Health and Africana studies at Brown University, she completed her academic journey at the University of Virginia School of Law. Dania has written extensively on heir property, Black land loss, racial disparities in maternal mortality, racial disparities in the criminialization of mothers, and disparities in healthy food access for low-income and communities of color.


Dania began her legal career as a Skadden Fellow at the North Carolina Association of Black Lawyers Land Loss Prevention Project implementing a project she designed which provided community education and estate planning services to improve Black farmers' access to legal services in the rural South. During her tenure at Land Loss, she developed the documentary - "Our Land, Our Lives: The North Carolina Black Farmers' Experience" and served on the inaugural North Carolina Sustainable Local Food Advisory Council. She has lectured and facilitated workshops at conferences on the local, state, and national level on equity issues facing rural Black America.


Dania is honored to continue the important work of the Black Belt Justice Center as a continuation of her legal career which has been dedicated to supporting wealth-building and preservation in rural Black communities.
