New Board Member: Susan Schewel
When Susan Schewel moved to Philadelphia 30 years ago, Bread & Roses was the first place she volunteered. Her continued support has been motivated by her belief in the power of Philadelphia grassroots organizations to create change. A women’s health activist, she was as an OB/GYN nurse, a women’s health nurse practitioner, and the executive director of the Women’s Medical Fund from 2003 to 2017. Susan has worked in patient care, research, policy, management, and fundraising. She served on the Philadelphia Board of Health, the National Women’s Health Network board, and the Congregation Mishkan Shalom board, and is excited to bring her knowledge and skills to the Bread & Roses board.
New Staff Member: Caitlin Quigley
Caitlin Quigley joins the staff as director of communications & development. She started volunteering at Bread & Roses in 2012 and served on staff in 2014 and 2015. Caitlin co-founded the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance, and in 2016 she was named a winner of the Knight Cities Challenge for her project 20 Book Clubs → 20 Cooperative Businesses, which organized 180 people to study economic cooperation and then form their own cooperative businesses. Caitlin holds a bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University and a Master of Arts in social justice and community organizing from Prescott College. She is delighted to return to staff and would love to talk to you about moving money to movements for change.
