Latia Henderson is joining the RootED team as the Director of Communications, a new role that will support raising awareness on RootED’s work and elevating the impact of grantee organizations through storytelling and network building.
Henderson brings more than 12 years of experience in nonprofit leadership and management to this role and has extensive experience as a community volunteer, community advocate, and board member.
“I’ve committed my life to supporting students, with nearly eight years of my career working directly with students from DPS. I have the lived experience of navigating a school system that was not built with me in mind,” says Henderson. “I am excited about the opportunity to build a strong communications strategy to promote community-driven change—so every child in Denver has access to a high-quality education and ultimately the agency to define their own success.”
