David is driven by the possibility of creating justice by bringing together coalitions that will transform the current climate of hate, fear and inequity. Before joining Headwaters in 2004, he worked for the State Department of Education as director of the Children's Trust Fund, which partners with local communities to prevent child abuse. He is actively involved in the Native American community and has served on various local and nationalĀ boards of directors, advisory committees and task forces that align with his passion for philanthropy, racial justice, environmental justice and the well-being of Native American families.
