April S. Love is a native of both Kentucky and Mississippi, and is what would be considered by many to be a true southern belle. She is a policy analyst and licensed attorney working on agriculture policy, civil rights, and social equity. Prior to beginning her career in the public policy sector, she began immersing herself in the field as an undergraduate, graduate, and law student. She was a first-generation college student when she began her adult education and advocacy journey at Tougaloo College, receiving her bachelor’s degree in 2015. Following her time at Tougaloo, Angela joined the Mississippi Teacher Corps, taught full-time in a high-needs school district, and pursued her master’s degree at the University of Mississippi. Distraught about what she saw in her classroom, Angela left the field of education to pursue her law degree at Southern University Law Center, where she graduated in May 2020.
In her spare time, April participates in organizations that drive change in her community, the United States, and the world. Outside of the work she does in her professional capacity, she attends to her other full-time job as a mother to her 2-year-old son, Dawson, fostering his development as a positive member of society. When she’s not working or advocating for others she spends her time horseback riding (a family tradition on both sides), playing golf with her father, or connecting with nature by working outside in her garden.
