Celebrating 50 years of healing justice work with Bonnie Kerness

Bonnie Kerness started her 50-year journey at the American Friends Service Committee as a young tenant organizer in Elizabeth, NJ, where she helped build a citywide coalition to support the right to housing. Prior to joining AFSC she was an organizer during the civil rights movement in the South, an experience which provided her with a deep anti-racist analysis that drives her work to this day.

Now, 50 years later, we recognize and celebrate the profound impact Bonnie has had on our work, and on our lives. Learn more about Bonnie and our healing justice work here!
