Kevin O’Neill is a Virginia native that is very passionate about service work and community building. Kevin’s love of live music and the community surrounding it makes service work within it a natural fit – he began by regularly volunteering with the DC chapter of DanceSafe promoting health and safety awareness in the live music community and then joined HeadCount as Richmond’s co- Team Leader registering voters and promoting participation in democracy through the power of music. Kevin’s road to activism was a long and winding one; he spent his early twenties incarcerated for non-violent felonies and it was in prison that he learned who he was and how to live from the heart. AoC was born less than a year after his release from the penitentiary. When not engaged in various activism initiatives Kevin enjoys reading, being outside, and crafting puns.
