Rynn Reed, New Lead Organizer

Poverty Jobs task force meetingHey everyone!

I can’t wait to meet you all and hear your stories about Rochester and the changes you’d like to see. I’ve spent the last 6 years active in New York politics and activism -working on campaigns from Long Island to Buffalo. I’ve really enjoyed the experience and am excited to join your team as an organizer. Rochester is an incredible city that I look forward to mobilizing with your help and dedication

We are looking forward to working with Rynn Reed, our new full time Roc/ACTS organizer!
She's just returned from the Gamaliel Organizer orientation in Chicago, spent a day talking to childcare advocates in Rochester, and flew home to Brooklyn. She'll be moving to Rochester and starting on December 18th.
Rynn's energy and commitment to social justice is contagious! She has worked for a progressive economic think tank, organized in the field on political campaigns, helped unionize her workplace, and has administrative experience.
Rynn will be reaching out to board members and clergy to meet the week of the 18th. We are hoping you will have time in your schedule some time that week to meet with her.
We are blessed to have her on board.

Wilma Cambell, Coodinator

As part time coordinator Wilma Cambell will help coordinate events and activities (such as the Sacred Conversations) as well as help with our books and billing. Some of you have probably already heard from Wilma as she has worked the phones and email to line up Sacred Conversations dates.

We're grateful to have Wilma's corporate auditing experience as well as her deep commitment to social, economic and racial justice. You might have already met Wilma at one of the many events, activities or actions in the community - Wilma was the organizer behind the series of showings and workshops around I'm Not a Racist, Am I and the book group for The Cross and the Lynching Tree. Wilma worships with the Rochester Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as the Quakers.

Wilma has attended the Gamaliel National Leadership Training.
