Wykeem Speach was born in Philadelphia, pa. He was raised in north Philadelphia. He has been with Make the Road since 2017. His current position is a Lead Canvasser. What makes him passionate about the work we do is the fact that he grew up in a low income community and understands some people in these areas feel like their voice does not matter. When they see someone that came from the same neighborhood as them they are willing to give an open ear. He feels good knowing that he is giving back to the communities he comes from, that is what makes him love the work he does here at Make the Road.
