Who We Are
Emily Duma is a food justice organizer with roots in midwestern corn fields and permaculture farming. She is currently serving as an Emerson National Hunger Fellow working with the Center for Community Change on a broad based economic justice campaign calling for guaranteed good jobs for all and reinvestment in communities with concentrated poverty. In her spare time, Emily likes to cook, laugh, build relationships and, as a leader with Resource Generation and a founding organizer of ReGenerative Finance, help other people with class privilege figure out how to trust people more than money and build a world without extractive capitalism.
Kate Poole works as a consultant, researcher and comics creator in the fields of local investing and alternative economic development. Right now she’s a turnaround consultant at Friends Rehabilitation Program, a Quaker values-based affordable housing and social service provider. Kate organizes with Resource Generation and Regenerative Finance to leverage her resources and her owning class privilege for social change. You can check out her comics at pooleaccounts.com.
