What's your profession and does it relate to sustainability?

I run a small business and community development firm which assists the growth and development of small businesses and NGOs. As an independent community organizer and social/environmental justice advocate, I assist communities with procuring resources and becoming more sustainable.

What geographic region do you work/live in?

I live and work in social/environmental justice communities in northern New Jersey.

Do you want to get or share anything particular with the group?

I want to build community and help organizations learn to advocate around sustainability, environmental justice and empowering local communities.

Have you had the opportunity to mentor another person? How did you feel about your experience? Have you been on the receiving end of a mentoring relationship?

I've mentored quite a few people, and currently mentor the leaders of the Bergen Community College NAACP and NJ State level NAACP Youth and College Division.

What are members of your organization doing to green your business?

Reducing consumption – of energy, gas and disposable items – is a big thing for us. Responsible waste handling is another area we're committed to: we responsible recycle even electronic waste, compost and are careful about packaging. We recycle, reuse and share what we learn with friends and colleagues.

Introduction
