Hello Staff, Clients, and Community,

I am honored to hold the role as Chair for RNW’s board of directors.  I accepted the opportunity to be on the board a year and a half ago because I was familiar with RNW’s work in the community.  I supported students at Madison High School and Parkrose High School where RNW’s Restorative Justice work was building connections between students and students and staff.  It was my service in the past year and a half that has opened my eyes at the skills, abilities and impact this organization can, will and does have on the communities it serves.  When I accepted this role I wanted to contribute my skills to our mission of facilitating honest dialogue to resolve conflict and advance racial and social justice.

I look forward to applying my skills in leadership development and positive inquiry in a compassionate and inclusive manner that centers the most impacted to my new role as Chair.  I hope that my authenticity and community-centered approach leaves an impact that continues to encourage our organization to serve communities in ways that meet their unique needs.

 Thank you for this opportunity RNW community and I look forward to serving you.

 Best Regard,

 Afrita Davis
