Jessica Black

Born and raised in Oregon, I am passionate about the vibrancy of the state and the Pacific Northwest, and I am delighted to be part of the RDI team supporting grants, programs, and communications. My career has been devoted to working with small, local nonprofits and grassroots organizations focused on equitable education, economic justice, community engagement and civic participation, supporting the overall vitality of the region; as an active volunteer, I love being involved in my community and am dedicated to making positive, lasting change in the world through philanthropy, policy and collaboration.
