Julian Hall is San Francisco born and raised and a product of its public school system. Growing up across neighborhoods in a rapidly changing city alongside six brothers and sisters, he and his family got by thanks to community support systems like those at Coleman.

In high school, Julian discovered and honed his artistic and political voice as a member of empowered youth organizations like The DJ Project, United Playaz, and Youth Art Exchange (formerly Out of Site).

Julian’s experience with children and youth spans nearly ten years, including work at The Salvation Army Kroc Center and Lafayette Elementary School. Most recently, he worked at The New School of San Francisco, where he spent time both in and outside the classroom supporting K-8 students in their learning, with a keen focus on equity and empowerment for children of color and neurodivergence.

Julian aims to blend his life and work experiences as a CMAC organizer to uplift and energize the youth in his hometown to find their voice.
