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

I come to work at Root & Rebound every day to be that positive change I know I can be and want to be for people that have been marginalized for way too long. I show up each and every day to work on social justice issues, fight systemic injustices, create pathways out of poverty and crisis, and to transform lives.
