Reverend Alaina Cobb has experienced hate from a young age due to her identity. After seeing what the culture she was raised in looked like, she knew she had to do something. Her activism was ignited from experiences in childhood to adulthood, but her constant inspiration stems from her children as they fuel her to fight for others and for their ability to be “fully human.” As a mother, reverend and fighter, Alaina Cobb attempts to change the world around her.
