Levers for Change: How Community Action Marin is Alleviating Poverty in Marin

Chandra Alexandre is the CEO of CAM with over 20 years of experience supporting organizations to social justice outcomes. Her work has helped strengthen regional affordable housing and early childhood education initiatives, expand education reform strategies nationally, and resource grassroots-led movement-building for global women's rights. Chandra's commitment to equity serves her well at Community Action Marin, where board and staff are standing with low-income families and individuals struggling to find opportunity and fulfill their dreams in challenging times. Her vision is to help propel local efforts to eradicate disparities forward while promoting self-sufficiency for all in a county that has the largest inequities between racial groups in California. Doing this will require a healing-centered approach that brings awareness of community trauma to the fore. Under her leadership, CAM will continue to provide the high-quality services necessary to meet community needs while also fostering and advocating for a thriving Marin County.
