CABC Racial Economic Justice Fellow, Melody Ng, is leading research about how the personal experiences of economic justice and asset building advocates and service providers shape the valuable professional skills and strengths that they bring to their work. This research is meant to make these skills and strengths visible and valuable to the wider asset building community -- including those who hire and manage staff, design funding opportunities, and set policy priorities -- and to help us better understand the needs of the individuals and organizations that support asset building through their work.
