Melissa (she/her/hers) first learned about Headwaters as a grantee and has been a fan ever since. She started organizing, unofficially, in third grade and is a proud alum of a multi-faith and -racial Community Organizing Residency. Melissa’s top five favorites list includes: friends and family; community-building; nature; puppies; and worrying.

Contact Melissa if you have questions about HFJ's funding opportunities and programs; community-led grantmaking with a racial justice lens; organizing and leadership development; and encouraging philanthropy to fund radical movements for change.
