Frankie Burton - San Francisco Bay Area, CA
When my ethos aligns with an organization you cannot stop me from promoting it! This is what happened when I caught the IAP2 bug. Without officially participating in a program, I naturally began acting as a form of IAP2 Ambassador after completing the IAP2 Foundations courses in 2017. I truly believe in the power of IAP2 and have a vision of spreading it everywhere I go! I became a public participation practitioner because I grew up in environmental justice communities and want to help them. Learning with IAP2 opened my eyes to how I can accomplish my goals and in turn help dis-empowered communities control their own destiny. It changed my life and I want to bring this joyful and eye-opening experience to others so they can help others and continue the positive feedback loop here.
