We are thrilled to announce that our circle has expanded! In November, CJI added Jordan Moeller to the Development and Communications Department as an associate. Jordan will be working under the direction of Raquel Marion-Virgo and Isaac Skelton to advance fundraising and communications efforts, as well as broadening CJI’s capacity to launch new key projects and initiatives.
Jordan is a communications and development specialist with years of experience in grants management, coalition building, and creative storytelling. A longtime Seattle resident, Jordan cut his teeth in the nonprofit sector as an organizer and canvasser at Washington Community Action Network, fighting for causes like universal healthcare, eviction reform, and ending punitive criminal sentencing at the state level.
Most recently, Jordan served as assistant executive director at The Restorative Center, a small organization doing innovative restorative justice work, after overseeing their pilot “Restorative Justice Clemency and Parole” program as the project manager. Outside of his work in the nonprofit sector, Jordan is an award-winning comedian and active member of two sketch comedy teams in New York City.
CJI would also like to celebrate our employees who have reached one year with the organization in 2021!
Among them are Grants Management Associate Elana McGovern whose tireless work has been critical in supporting our grantees through a maelstrom of challenges in 2021, Communications and Development Manager Isaac Skelton who has done a tremendous job in overhauling CJI’s messaging strategies, Finance and Operations Manager Fanny Bueso who provides endless assistance to the staff across the nitty gritty administrative side of CJI, and Executive Assistant Zachary Hendrickson, a stalwart support for our ever-busy executive director, Aleah Bacquie Vaughn.
CJI is currently looking to fill another Executive Assistant position in 2022 to support the Executive Director in the coordination and administration of all day-to-day operations of the organization. Please direct any candidates you may know to our website for more information!
