The Times They Are a Changin’

Changes in the world and changes at Dogwood Alliance…

The world is changing at an incredibly fast pace right now: change in Washington, a rapidly changing economy, and even change here at Dogwood Alliance. This week our amazingly talented Organizing Director, Eva Hernandez, started a new position with MoveOn tackling the issues of green jobs and the  new economy. Eva was an amazing addition to our staff over the past four years, organizing the grassroots, providing critical thinking and insight on our campaigns, and as a solid talent in organizing one of the most underserved regions of the country, the Southern US, and she will be sorely missed!

Thanks to Eva though, we are well positioned on our campaigns and ready to embrace a bigger and bolder future here at Dogwood Alliance. We have the fast food companies scrambling, some of the largest paper companies in the world are at the table, and we are ready to take the debate on climate and forests to a whole new level.

We are excited about our work and hope you are too! Feel free to drop me a line any time at [email protected] to discuss, as I always love to hear your feedback!  Though change can be unsettling, we hope you will join us in taking a deep breath and stepping back to take a big picture look so we can all envision together a bright future for our forests, economy and the planet. Let’s all dream a little dream together and start the hard work of making it happen.  We couldn’t do it without you!

For the forests,

Scot Quaranda
