Adam is an Assistant District Attorney with the 19th JDC, Office of the District Attorney and a youth coach with the Gardere Youth Alliance & Gardere Initiative. Adam’s work has included time as the Southern Regional Director and Louisiana Chapter President of the National Black Prosecutors Association, an organization geared towards the education, training, communication and development of minorities in the law enforcement and legal professional communities. Adam seeks to be a bridge from the court system back to the community by using the same motto he uses with his youth football team: Accountability, Commitment, Community. His ultimate goal is to strive to keep the community safe but to engage with the court system in a way that seeks to make an individual better leaving the court system than the individual was coming into the court system through education, access to resources, and by addressing foundational needs.
