With great joy we celebrate growth in the leadership of Roots of Justice! 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 2019, is coming on staff as Director of Curriculum and Marketing.
Having two Black femme Co-Directors of Roots of Justice for the first time positions us well for increased growth and depth as we move into the future. We 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, which we opened on Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2023.
We need your help to raise $10,000 by the end of 2023 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?
Our November Racism is Real dialogue is an opportunity to get to know our new Co-Directors, Bethany Stewart and Courtney Anika. Join us on Facebook Live on Monday, Nov. 27 at 7-8pm ET / 4-5pm PT:
