Director of Community Research and Storytelling at the Community Justice Project
Nadege Green is Director of Community Research and Storytelling at the Community Justice Project. She worked as a journalist in Miami for just over 10 years investigating how local government policies and actions—both historical and contemporary—impact everyday people. Her work centers around using analysis, data and narratives from the directly impacted to address housing inequities, climate justice, gun violence and other pressing issues in Miami-Dade County that disproportionately impact black and brown communities. Green believes in the power of teaching community storytelling as a means to educate, problem-solve and heal. She is a frequent lecturer and speaker in academic and community settings around disparities in Miami-Dade, local history and race. Green is a recipient of the Ruth Shack Leadership Award and the Florida ACLU Gene Miller Voice of Freedom Award. She's also the proud mom of two amazing boys, Noah and Jacob.
