Angelique A. Kidd moved to Ferguson in 2004 and has been a homeowner in Ward 1 ever since. She was raised in a military family and is also a USARMY veteran. Active in her community, Angelique completed the Neighborhood Leadership Academy course from UMSL and worked with the City of Ferguson to help draft a new city ordinance that established the first community gardens. In 2014 Angelique began her education in police accountability out in the streets of Ferguson while protesting the murder of Mike Brown by a Ferguson Police officer. Since then she has been a member on the Civilian Review Board Task Force, attended and presented comments at town halls, consent decree status hearings, and City Council meetings. She has also completed the Witnessing Whiteness workshop, the all-day NACOLE conference -Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement: A Road to Building Community Trust, and has completed the Citizens Police Academy through the St. Ann Police Department. While Angelique considers herself an abolitionist, she also believes it her civic duty to participate in our current societal system of policing as it pertains to accountability.
