Pamela Mullins

Pamela Mullins is a cultural organizer and community advocate who has excelled in several professions. She recognizes the significance of the environment - the land we inhabit, the water we consume, the air we breathe, and the food we eat, and how they affect our physical and mental health. Pamela creates opportunities for individuals to unite, learn about and support the environment, and develop their ideas. Her insight led to the formation of Community and Restorative Justice-Covington. The new organization has evolved under a new leadership.

She is also a Covington Human Rights Commissioner and sponsored the ordinance in 1999 that established it. Pamela is a member of the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI), serving on the Environmental Justice and Land Use standing committees.

Pamela's remarkable efforts earned her a place in the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights Hall of Fame in 2007. She served as a Covington City Commissioner from 1997-1999. Pamela made history when she was elected to the Covington Schools Board, serving for seven years from 1990 as the first African American to do so.
