At CSSP

I support the work of the Mixed-income Strategic Alliance and the Mixed-income Innovation and Action Network, which are endeavoring to make mixed-income communities work for their most marginalized families. I also contribute to the Equity, Inclusion, and Justice team, which is thinking about how to support CSSP in its journey toward becoming an anti-racist organization. In addition, I have supported the work of the Youth at Risk of Homelessness project, which seeks to end homelessness for New Jersey youth who have been involved in the child welfare system.

I do this work because

I believe that housing is a human right and that non-profit organizations have a role to play in challenging white supremacy in the systems they touch.

I am most proud of

My ability to skillfully coordinate complex projects with multiple moving pieces.

When the day is done

I am either heading to one of Washington, D.C.’s amazing public pools, going for a run in Rock Creek Park, or organizing with Showing Up for Racial Justice DC (SURJ-DC) to welcome white people into active support of Black and people of color-led racial justice work.
