UNANIMA International (UI) Transitions

Tori Larson (pictured next page), Executive Assistant at UI since early 2014, is leaving2

to pursue a law degree at Berkeley this fall. In reflecting on her time at UNANIMA (UI) she wrote: “These two years have flown by. I have learned more than I ever could have expected — not only about social justice, the UN, systemic change and bureaucracy — but also about faith and love and kindness. I have become more passionate, articulate and refined in my interests, and also come to understand care, my place on the Earth, and the intersection of human rights and dignity in complex and changing ways. I leave UI with a heart full of gratitude and energy to continue on my path. UI has been the perfect transitional job for me. I am forever grateful.”

Teresa Blumenstein will replace Tori as Executive Assistant in late August. You will learn more about Teresa in the coming weeks, but we know that her experience and energy will be of great service to us and the greater NGO community at the UN.
