Collectively, his academic, professional work experience, community social justice and activist training, volunteer experience, and consultancies have enabled the development of his strong core competencies in policy-relevant, community-engaged research activities.   Clayton’s work with the International Visitors Leadership Program, subcontractors of the State Department, provided an extraordinary experience to present conflict resolution workshops to over 50 different countries concerning current U.S. social, political, and economic issues for young leaders.   He has maintained a strong community connection throughout the years.    Clayton’s leadership at ACM and his knowledge of the Ward 7 and 8 communities was instrumental in ACM obtaining two grants allowing the organization to lead two major initiatives:  Cure the Streets and Credible Messenger.  Clayton has help lead the development of a 88-page conflict resolution manual with America University in order to help all residents deal with conflict and trauma informed care.
