Robert Fields Jackson II is a community activist, an organizer, a humanitarian, a father and a husband. Based in Harlem, the 36-year-old spends most of his time giving back.

Jackson’s accolades include membership to the Martin Luther King Jr. Democratic Club, Jews for Jesus, the 121st Street Block Association and the Ethiopian World Federation, Inc. He’s also a New York County Committee Member for the 93rd District

As husband, step father to a daughter and father to an 11-month-old, Jackson appears to have his hands full. But he makes time to work on the various community service projects he heads up all year long.

Becoming active in the community in 2014, Jackson said he was inspired by Council Member Bill Perkins when Perkins was a state senator. Jackson got involved in politics and also engaged in the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

“Something told me to get involved in the community,” he said. “When you do good, it comes back to you.”

Since 2014, Jackson has held annual coat, book and food drives, leading each charity drive on his own. He’s also involved in voter registration in the community.

However, his work goes beyond the borders of the United States. He has strong ties to Africa that include family in the nations of Burkina Faso and Ghana, and he also does charity work for several African nations. He encourages others to find their roots and make the journey to the continent.

“Everyone should go back,” he said. “You might start crying, because it happened to me the first time I went. I feel more connected to my roots by traveling to where my ancestors come from. It’s a wonderful feeling.”

In working with youth, Jackson is noted for engaging them in politics and getting them to register to vote. He is also known for his back-to-school supply drives, which help local school children in need.

“When I give back to the community, it shows me that love prevails,” he said. “Through hard work, dedication and prayer, anything is possible.”

Jackson said he wants to run for elected office in the future. He’s not ruling out the possibility of running for mayor, governor or even president.

“I do plan to run for office, but I’m not sure what position,” he said. “I’m trying to build up my name. You can’t wake up one day and say you want to run for president.” His political ties include close relationships with several current elected officials.

Some of Jackson’s upcoming activities include participating in the One Thousand Ministers March for Justice in Washington, D.C. led by Sharpton, a trip to Israel with Jews for Jesus, marching in the African-American Day Parade and his annual coat drive.
