LL33: Edward W. Neufville, III - Olympic Runner, Immigration Lawyer
Edward Neufville is the founder and owner of the Law Office of Edward W. Neufville, III, LLC. Born in Liberia, he moved to the US in December 1990 at the age of 14 to escape the civil war that started there. He was a Division 1 track and field runner at UNC Chapel Hill, has held US records in the 400m hurdles and represented Liberia in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics as a relay team member. As you listen, you'll notice a slight stutter, and this along with being an immigrant to this great country is what makes his story so compelling. Never give up! The law office is a full-service United States Immigration and Nationality law firm and they are committed to their clients and their community. Their firm has the reputation of taking challenging cases and producing positive results on behalf of their clients. In most cases, the stakes are extremely high and the lives and livelihood of the firm’s clients depend on the outcome of their cases. Their firm’s goal is simple. They provide excellent and competent legal services to corporate and individual clients on their immigration or international matters. In addition to the firm’s immigration practice, they serve individuals and U.S. businesses, especially in matters relating to Sub-Saharan Africa, by providing general consultancies, and advice on the intersection of United States domestic law and international law or foreign law. With an expansive understanding of American and African legal and socio-cultural affairs, the office effectively provides solutions to concerns arising from the convergence of African and the Western legal policies.

LL32: Adam & Becca Stanley - Blueprint58
Blueprint58 exists to empower youth to grow into community leaders through mutually transformational relationships. Their vision: A restored SouthWest Atlanta where youth are empowered to grow into community leaders. Their approach: Deeply rooted in Isaiah 58:12, we believe that communities can be restored through building mutually transformative relationships. This approach keeps the individuals that make up the community at the center of what we do. Through spending time, sharing laughs, and engaging culture, we open up ourselves to other opportunities to partner with and empower the community we are now active members of. Adam and Rebecca Stanley started Blueprint58 to connect neighbors and friends and broaden horizons on both sides of the relationship. Through sports programs, a young mother’s support group, community building events, and mentoring relationships, we strive to build future leaders from within. We firmly believe mutually transforming relationships will be the thing that changes the world. Crossing boundaries of race and class and history and culture will create a more beautiful tomorrow for each and every one of us.
