Bonnie Thomas-Jeter is a civil servant with a passion for economic justice. This transplant Angeleno has served four administrations of the Los Angeles Urban League, from John Mack to current CEO, Cynthia Heard, over the past 33 years.

As Executive Administrator, Bonnie has been exemplary in engaging community, political, and corporate partners, while upholding the bylaws of the organization.

Answering the call of many roles, she has worked with the past three national Presidents and Chief Executive Officers and most affiliates across the nation to uplift transformative programs.

She continues her marathon race of service to the community, while also enjoying a mastery of crochet arts, and her commitment to family, including her cherished grandchildren.
