RootED Welcomes Two New Members to the Team
RootED Denver is excited to announce two new leaders who have joined the team : Ambar Suero as the Partner of Community Partnership and Advocacy and Latia Henderson as the Director of Communications. 
As the Partner of Community Partnership and Advocacy, Ambar Suero will lead RootED’s community investment activities and maintain essential community relationships with partner organizations. This role is vital in achieving the organization's goal of investing in community-driven change. 
Suero is a bilingual community advocacy professional with over 17 years of staff development, program management, partnership development and strategic leadership.

“My approach has always been to implement grassroots best practices that positively affect communities through direct stakeholder management and effective programs that enhance community agency. RootED shares my personal and professional values by working to ensure communities have access to resources that drive change in their lives for the better,” says Suero.
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.”
