Why do you come to work at Root & Rebound every day?

I am drawn to the social justice mission of Root & Rebound and the tremendous impact it has on people’s lives. Through my work here, I love that I am contributing to an organization that is fighting systemic racism and structural barriers that keep us all from thriving.
