CONNECT WITH US:
Sometime in the last century-1997 to be exact-I was offered a unique opportunity to take the helm of a small San Francisco-based nonprofit organization. As You Sow, with two part-time staff, had some big ideas and huge potential. I jumped at the chance to become Executive Director and lead an organization with lofty goals of corporate accountability, toxics reduction, shareholder advocacy, and environmental enforcement.
Now, 15 years later, I'm leaving my post, proud of As You Sow's phenomenal growth, its myriad public interest accomplishments and as I ponder my next adventure, I'm proud to look back and consider some of the highlights of As You Sow's work over the past 15 years...
Proceeds from our enforcement settlements were donated to fund other nonprofits. The favorite part of my job involved reviewing grant applications and providing, over the past 20 years, more than $2.5 million dollars, to more than 110 fabulous nonprofit groups working on cutting edge of toxics prevention, awareness, remediation, clean-up, or environmental education.
I want to introduce Danielle Fugere, who will be filling my role as President and comes to As You Sow with decades of legal and advocacy experience. I am confident that As You Sow is in very capable hands, prepared to achieve even greater successes in the years to come. I am honored to join As You Sow's Advisory Board and provide continuity and input for the As You Sow team.
My thanks to the As You Sow board, staff, funders, and grantees for all their years of support; my heart will always be filled with fondness for the work, legacy, and future. I'm sure I'll continue to see everyone along the proverbial campaign trail. ONWARD!
