With great joy we celebrate growth in the leadership of Roots of Justice! Having two Black femme Co-Directors of Roots of Justice for the first time ever positions us well for increased growth and depth as we move into the future.
Since 2021, Courtney Anika has served as Executive Director and has brought excellent administrative leadership and vision to the Collective. She is excited to now serve as Director of Operations and Development on a Co-Director team. Bethany Stewart, who has been a trainer with Roots of Justice since 2020, joins us as Director of Curriculum and Marketing.
They have some projects in the works, such as an update of our Set Free curriculum, and a forthcoming launch of a coaching group for BIPOC professionals serving in predominantly White institutions.
Please help us welcome Bethany on staff and celebrate our Co-Directors!
You can support Black femme leadership by giving to our Sustainable Leadership campaign. We need your help to raise $10,000 in 2024 to support our new Co-Director model that lifts up Black femme joy and creativity and promotes rest and sustainability. Will you make a gift today?
You may also create a campaign to fundraise within your own social network to join us in celebrating Black femme leadership and increase your impact.
On Nov. 27, Bethany and Courtney Led a Co-Directors Chat on Facebook Live - listen in to get to know them better and here their vision for ROJ moving forward!
