Loving wife and mother of four, born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Tameka is a communitarian and well known advocate for women, children and their families. She has spent her career fighting for Nevada's working, underserved, and most vulnerable residents.

Tameka Henry is the Executive Director for The Obodo Collective. Obodo's mission is to provide long term solutions and support to eliminate multi-generational poverty in our communities. This work includes eviction court observations to keep families housed, supporting families with referrals for resources including free child care and mutual aid, and combating food insecurity. Obodo's gem is its Urban Farm at 1300 C Street on the Historic Westside. This project will increase access to locally grown quality produce and offer gardening classes and chef demos. 

Her position on several mission driven organizations allows her to continue to advocate for the issues that matter to her most. This includes:


Co- founder and Chairperson for Rise Up Nevada an education advocacy group for families; Nevada Head Start Association; Region IX Head Start Association; Chairperson of Acelero Learning Clark County Board of Directors;  Board Member and Director of Mentorship for T.U.L.I.P.S.; Vice Chairperson of the North Las Vegas Library Board of Trustees; Committee member of Children's Advocacy Alliance Strong Start; Ambassador for Make it Work Nevada;  Member of the (SOT) School Organizational Team at Northwest Technical Academy; and Parent advisor for The Aspen Institute in the initiative for post secondary success for parents. 

She hopes to not only inspire but to empower families to be their child’s first teacher and strongest advocate.  Tameka Henry self-sacrifices and generously gives her time to promote the welfare and education of Las Vegas' children and their families.
