Anne Hess "is the co-Chair of MADRE's Board and as a board member since 1983, she has helped shape MADRE's vision and projects. In the early 1980s, Anne traveled to Nicaragua and met with mothers there. A mother of young children herself, Anne knew that other women in the U.S. would be as moved as she was by their stories and determination. Anne has spent the past 30 years working with a variety of non-profit organizations, whose missions of social justice she shares. Anne is Chair of the Community Resource Exchange Board, and serves on other non-profit boards in New York City. She is married, has two children, and lives in New York City."
