Tiffany Brown "joined the Board in 2006. She has always been passionate about finding ways to communicate compassionately and effectively across differences, and her starting point was how to communicate across racial difference. She has worked with the anti-racist group, Women As Allies, as well as the national civil rights organization, the NAACP, in the Southeast Regional office's Prison Project in Atlanta, Georgia. It was in Atlanta that Tiffany connected with and became active with an organization called Be Present, Inc. Through Be Present, Tiffany became familiar with YES!, an organization that connects, inspires and empowers young changemakers. She moved to Santa Cruz, CA, to work with them and is currently a Program Manager there.
"Within a year Tiffany had co-founded the Community Alliances Initiative, a local group that works across difference. Tiffany has facilitated a series titled Being Multiracial, sponsored by the local Santa Cruz branch of the NAACP, and she has also co-facilitated Mom’s & Kids Club through the Walnut Avenue Women’s Center, working with the children of parents who are survivors of domestic violence. Tiffany loves to cook, enjoy whole foods, and host little gatherings. She has been known to cut a rug, and wants more of that in her life. She currently resides in Santa Fe, NM."
