Tamara Jackson works extensively with New Orleans Social Aid & Pleasure Clubs, as well as the anti-violence campaign Silence is Violence. Tamara directs the Social Aid & Pleasure Club Task Force, which was formed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to represent various neighborhood clubs and advocate for their shared interests. Immediately after the storm, New Orleans Police Department increased the fees required for police escorts during second line parades. The fees became prohibitively expensive, prompting the formation of the Task Force, which successfully sued NOPD, forcing a reduction of escort fees.
Tamara is also the president and founder of VIP Ladies and Kids Social Aid & Pleasure Club, and the director of Victim and Community Outreach with Silence is Violence.
