Ashley Abercrombie - Liberty City Director

Ashley is passionate about transformation in people, communities and neighborhoods. She is committed to developing sustainable solutions to felt needs through a restorative justice model, through partnership and collaboration, and desires to see change at both the individual and institutional level. Ashley discovered this passion over the 14 years she lived in Los Angeles, where she met and married her husband Cody, and birthed their little boy, Levi. Her experience includes working strategically with city and state government of Los Angeles, and California, law enforcement through four divisions of LAPD, alongside a variety of non-profits, the business and faith community, for the collective goal of social change. She has started and built strong volunteer teams to close gaps in areas like education, homelessness, human trafficking, missions and food deserts.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Our Founder and Chairman, Paul Andrew and his wife Andi, began Liberty City in 2011 out of a desire to partner across multiple sectors (including city government, law enforcement, NGO’s, business and faith communities)to affect change for the greater good. Paul was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, where he experienced more than two decades of leadership roles spanning NGO’s, government, and faith-based organizations. For ten of those years he was Director of a network of community youth centers funded by local, state and federal Australian government departments. He later spent several years as a keynote speaker and executive coach in the corporate sector. Today, Paul and Andi are also the Lead Pastors of Liberty Church, our sister organization and largest supporter in both finance and volunteers. The church began in 2010 with just a handful of passionate pioneers and a only few short years later it has become a thriving faith community with multiple locations across New York City and beyond.
