Darryl Alexander

Mr. Alexander is the Director of Operations of AFR. He has a B.S. in psychology from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Mr. Alexander’s time as an Americorps VISTA and a Peace Corps Volunteer showed him how powerful organized communities can be.

She holds a B.S. in journalism from the University of Texas at Austin. A career in journalism during the Trump era moved Ms. Blewitt to give up objectivity and fight social and climate injustice.
