|Never miss a show!
Making Contact celebrates a new beginning. We invite you to celebrate with us!
In June, we welcomed the third Executive Director in the organization’s 26 year history, Sonya Green. Her appointment is exciting for a few reasons.
To start, we think Sonya’s great. You can judge for yourself at the soiree. However, we think you will agree.
Additionally, her appointment adds to the list of great women leaders of the organization. Lisa Rudman is handing off the baton to Sonya, much like Peggy Law did with her 17 years ago. Making Contact values gender and racial equity. Appointing women to lead is but one way the organization lives its values.
Furthermore, what is important to Making Contact is also important to Sonya- social justice journalism. It is also important to you. Making Contact has done this work for years. That’s in huge part thanks to Lisa’s leadership. Sonya plans to keep it going. Her vision for the future is to include more reports from the South. She says when we understand the South, we understand America. To create those opportunities, she needs your support now more than ever.
Since June, Sonya has been getting to know the folks of Making Contact’s past and present. As she continues her exploration, we want you to meet her too.
This is your chance. Talk with Sonya, Lisa, the board and staff. Listen to great audio clips from the show. Maybe play a game or two. And share your ideas and feedback.
