I’m Dr. Jyl Hall, and I believe that if you want to see change in your community, you can’t just talk about it.
That’s precisely why I am serving in the City Council in Kettering, OH. I received my PhD in Intercultural Studies from Asbury Theological Seminary, which has enhanced my ability to educate on the topics of public justice and the faith community’s role in economic development. I believe this education helps young leaders to become informed voters and contributing members of society.
My main political interest is that working families can feed their kids at the end of a hard day’s work. This should be a simple concept, but sadly it is not the reality we are living in. As a life-long political activist, my aim is to create initiatives that help foster better income equality and allow individuals to be self-sufficient.
I thrive on creative problem solving, putting solutions into action, and seeing them through until the end. In academia, I excel in dynamic learning techniques, fostering critical thinking, and the worldview transformation process when teaching on intercultural issues. All of these skills translate to solving complex problems and providing unconventional answers.
I believe that if you want to create change, the only thing that matters is taking action. I have been involved in community public service for all of my adult life and I am on multiple local, national, and international boards and committees including the Biden/Harris Campaign’s Faith-Based Advisory team.
As I look toward the future, I am both inspired and energetic about creating good jobs and how our community can make housing more affordable.
