Her journey towards her doctorate aligned beautifully with her work as Education Anew Fellow. In these and other ways, Cierra’s fellowship has been tilling the ground for the deeper dive CJSF has forecast for our communications strategy and storytelling work.  

In that spirit, we are delighted to announce that Dr. Kaler-Jones is staying on as a member of the CJSF squad! As of May 3rd, Cierra is our Director of Storytelling!

Stay tuned for more exciting news (and opportunities to engage) with CJSF’s work, including the work of CJSF organizing partners and donor members, as we expand CJSF’s reach and impact in translating the work of organizers to multiple stakeholders, to increase support for organizers and education and racial justice organizing.

In solidarity forever,

The Communities for Just Schools Team
