Caitlin Stuart


Community Engagement & Navigator Manager, Nourish Colorado

In both my professional and personal life, I hope that being a part of SoPL will give me tools to be a better accomplice for farmworkers and equitable water rights, two issues at the forefront of food justice in my state. I also want to be able to transform my work as a Community Engagement manager from engagement to ownership, so it is truly justice and community-driven and led. I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn from such driven leaders who can in turn help our entire team become the leaders Colorado's food system needs
