Gyasi Ayo Kress
JEDI Committee Co-Chair
Gyasi Ayo Kress is a performing artist of multiple disciplines. Raised by his gay, blues-playing mother on the South Side of Chicago, being surrounded by poverty, homophobia, and racism, was the perfect fire to forge Gyasi's commitment to the equality and dignity of all life. Traversing all of life's experiences with a belief in human potential and world peace has reinforced the need to learn and practice healthy dialogue. This commitment to dialogue, the highest expression of non-violence, has created opportunities for him internationally as an artist, mentor, and teacher. Gyasi serves on the Board of Directors and co-chairs the JEDI committee at GLWI.
