Danielle continues on the Board as City Leader.

As we engage in the work ahead, let us remember what Hillary Clinton called us to in her Nov. 9 speech:

“Our constitutional democracy demands our participation, not just every four years, but all the time. So let’s do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear. Making our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top, protecting our country and protecting our planet. And breaking down all the barriers that hold any American back from achieving their dreams.”
