We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Nigel Charles, who recently joined Bread & Roses as project manager. Nigel will be supporting the growth of our newest program, the Giving Project, which guides participants through a process of collective learning, fundraising, and grantmaking.
A Philadelphia native, Nigel has worked in education and workforce development organizations in Philadelphia and Camden. Most recently, he served as the community development assistant at Philadelphia Local Initiatives Support Corporation, supporting program staff in planning and implementing community initiatives in Philadelphia neighborhoods.
Nigel has a master’s degree in urban studies from Eastern University and is passionate about racial, social, and economic justice, addressing community violence, and community/police relations. Nigel lives in the East Falls neighborhood with his wife, Brittany, who is a school counselor in Northeast Philadelphia.
