On Friday, August 5, America Forward released the following statement congratulating America Forward Advisory Board member Shirley Sagawa on her confirmation to the AmeriCorps Board of Directors:
“There are few people in America as dedicated to expanding and strengthening national service as Shirley Sagawa. Shirley’s career has been defined by an indefatigable commitment to ensuring that service is a cornerstone of our nation’s response to some of our most intractable social and economic challenges, and to making inclusive, supportive service opportunities available to more people around the country. At America Forward, we are enormously grateful to have had the opportunity to work closely with Shirley as a member of our America Forward Advisory Board and to benefit from her experience and strategic guidance. There is no better person to help steer the work of the AmeriCorps agency, formerly known as the Corporation for National and Community Service, and we are so excited by Shirley’s confirmation as a member of the Board of Directors. Congratulations, Shirley – we look forward to continuing to work together to support an inclusive vision for national service that is centered in equity, lifts up all of our communities, and moves all of America forward.”
