Our Leadership

Our leadership comes from our volunteers. We look for ways for people to grow in their leadership whether young or old, new to activism or with decades of experience. We believe that we are all going to need to grow in our leadership capacity to make a just and sustainable economy a reality.

EQAT’s board is responsible for making policy decisions and setting the overall strategic direction of the organization and campaign. Board members are also active volunteers in implementing that strategy. The staff plays an essential role in supporting a wide range of volunteer energy and power.
