Quincy Lucas

Quincy Lucas lives in Dover, Delaware with her supportive husband; Dr. Kevin A. Lucas and three lovely children: Malcolm, Victoria and Benjamin. She works in the field of Education, teaching 4th grade at Silver Lake Elementary School in the Appoquinimink School District. Quincy holds a bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education and a Masters Degree in Curriculum Design from Delaware State University, and is currently pursuing her Doctorate degree in Education at Wilmington University. Recently she had the distinct honor of giving the Vice Presidential nomination speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO. Quincy was chosen to give the nomination speech for Senator Joe Biden because of her grassroots work to bring about an end to domestic violence against women. On January 21, 2003 Quincy’s life was forever changed when her sister and only sibling, Dr. Witney H. Rose, was viciously murdered at the hands of her ex-boyfriend. The quest to capture this violent criminal and ultimately the journey to justice for Witney was not an easy. The Presiding Judge, John Grason Turnbull II, stated that never in his many years on the bench had he encountered someone so “glib” about the murder of a human being. Witney’s family and friends testified and attended the trial each day. In spite of this insurmountable loss; Quincy remains committed to keeping the memory of her sister alive and has become an advocate for victim’s rights and domestic violence awareness. Quincy is working to establish a non-profit organization: Witney’s Lights; this organization will focus of eradicating domestic violence. “My life-long commitment; until I have no breath left in me is to continue to speak to anyone willing to listen about the effects that domestic violence has on its victims and that crime can strike anyone; all are vulnerable; yet the first step to change is awareness”.

Help End Domestic Violence by Voting for Barack Obama and Joe Biden!

It was truly an honor for me to nominate Senator Biden as our country’s next Vice-President at the Democratic National Convention in August, but more importantly I was honored to represent the victims of Domestic Violence – to give a voice to their cries and to develop a relationship with a team of leaders who not only hear us, but welcome us and our ideas for change in the White House! ...more
