At last week’s ceremony in the state capitol, Kelly Carlisle was recognized for her service to the armed forces and the residents of District 18. Assemblymember Rob Bonta noted her admirable accomplishments as a leader in her community, state, and nation.

KellyOnDeck“It was an honor today to recognize Kelly Carlisle as the Veteran of the Year for the 18th Assembly District,” said Bonta, “Kelly continues her service to her country and community as the Founder and Executive Director of Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project, whose mission is to elevate life in the inner city by challenging oppressive dynamics and environments through urban farming. Thank you for your service and leadership, Kelly!”

Join us on Tuesday, July 28 as we celebrate this prestigious honor.

You knew Ms. Kelly is awesome as ANV’s executive director,  but did you know she’s also handy on the deck of an aircraft carrier?
