Ali will serve on the Racial and Identity Profiling Advisory Board, which discusses, analyzes, investigates and seeks policy solutions for the prevention of racial profiling by state and local law enforcement.

“I’m humbled by the opportunity to serve my state as part of RIPA and thank President Pro Tempore de León for this honor,” said Ali, who has served on the Compton School Board since 2007.

CUSD Board President Satra Zurita praised Ali’s appointment as a victory for the Compton Unified school community.

In addition to serving on CUSD’s School Board, Ali is also the president of the Compton Creek Mosquito Abatement District’s Board of Trustees, and a member of the Los Angeles County School Trustees Association.
