Darius Johnson

Advisor and Communications Specialist


In a Word: Strategic Anchor

Past: Connector of people, places and things through communications and community engagement. I strive to serve and empower communities I care about in everything that I do and I find unique ways to help organizations meet their goal.

Present: I help my colleagues at Due East Partners communicate their vision, mission and thought leadership in serving clients and I strive to help social sector constituents develop healthy perspective around diversity, equity, inclusion and justice while building their capacity for collaborative leadership, organizational development, strategic partnerships and business development/fundraising.

Happiest When: I’m on my bike and seeing the world on two wheels.

Personal Cause: I’m most passionate about history and helping the youth understand their roots so they understand how they can grow. Working with Chesapeake Heartland and the Kent County Historical Society helps me connect history to the youth in a number of ways.
