During its first meeting of the New Year, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners selected District 6 Commissioner Khadijah Abdur-Rahman as the 2024 Vice-Chairman. Commissioner Abdur-Rahman will serve in the role of Vice Chair for the next year.

"I am humbled by the confidence of my colleagues and honored to shoulder the responsibilities of the Vice Chair," said Commissioner Abdur-Rahman. "In this role, I will continue to build collaborations, address community needs, and work tirelessly to enhance the well-being of Fulton County residents and businesses."

Commissioner Abdur-Rahman is a business owner, community organizer, and human rights advocate who demonstrates a passion for people and purposeful leadership. Before becoming a Commissioner, she established herself as a leader in the social justice movement. The daughter of Victoria Travis Jackson, a legend in the annals of America's civil rights movement, and James Jackson, an entrepreneur, Khadijah grew up in Atlanta politics at the heart of the City's struggle with equity and Black empowerment.

The Commissioner is a leader who tackles the issues related to public safety, criminal justice reform, juvenile delinquency, senior services, youth programs, environmental justice, public health, economic development, arts, cultural programming, and mental health.

Commissioner Khadijah is sought out by individuals, stakeholders, and colleagues internationally for her transformative collaborative skills. This virtue was displayed when she teamed up with Georgia's First Lady, Marty Kemp, and the State's Attorney General to address the growing concerns of Human Trafficking. 

Commissioner Khadijah is a product of Atlanta Public Schools, having attended Peyton Forest Elementary, Southwest Atlanta High, and Benjamin E. Mays High. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice at the Ambassador Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University.
