An Important and Exciting Announcement from CTWO

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am writing to let you know about an important and exciting personal transition. As of May 9th, I will be stepping down from my position of E.D. at the Center for Third World Organizing and stepping into the role of program officer at the VEATCH Program at Shelter Rock. I will continue to be active on the  CTWO Board of Directors and will be leading the effort to expand board membership and participation in service of CTWO’s mission.

We have promoted Karissa Lewis, MAAP graduate and Training Director to Interim Director. Karissa helped found the Bay Area chapter of the National Taxi Workers Union and has played a key role in establishing and anchoring black movement organizations in the Bay.  Karissa’s leadership during this period will serve as a bridge and lasting connector to black movement infrastructure and CTWO’s Bay area roots.

I have been honored to play a role in continuing CTWO’s 30+ year history of advancing racial justice and building movement infrastructure. I am looking forward to continuing to work with CTWO and friends to advance this mission and continue our legacy.
