Tell us how you want to Be Social Change.

I have been involved in social change action for 20+ years. I founded a record label that siphoned profits to local nonprofits. I ran the business of a tenants' union in NYC. I helped design sentencing alternatives for a research and design policy think tank. I started a green real estate design firm that built the first LEED Gold building in Brooklyn, NY. I currently run Slow Money NYC, a non profit focused on redefining investment channels for sustainable food business. I chair NYC LION that invests in food business. I am excited to be part of this network and share strategies.

What is your email address? We'd love to send you the latest on events, classes, and impact oppportunities.
