COVID-19’s slowdowns and our change in leadership offer DWEJ’s board and staff a strong opportunity to reassess our future and chart a new and ambitious course for the organization. As part of this course of action, DWEJ has recruited consultant Jumana Vasi to work with us across the summer, in an effort to help us re-envision our goals for the coming decade.
Jumana is the principal at JVasi Consulting, LLC (@jumanavasi), where she advises nonprofit clients on creating environmental advocacy strategies, building organizational capacity, and implementing equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives. She is currently advising other environmental justice networks and partners, working with them to increase resources for their grassroots efforts and in turn, helping them solve environmental problems in ways that also reduce racial and economic injustices.
We would like to thank you all for your ongoing support during these trying times and for all you do to build a healthy environment that values all people. We expect to emerge from this period stronger and more focused on today’s challenges and tomorrow’s potential for a more environmentally just society.
