Community Engagement Coordinator
Ruth is the Community Engagement Coordinator at Riverworks. Ruth has been living in Riverwest for 22 years and has been organizing in the community for at least 15 of those years. In 2015, Ruth was brought on to the Riverworks team to do neighborhood association work, event planning, candidate forums, and so forth.
Back in February, 2020, Ruth was brought back on in a full-time role. Some events that she has been focusing on may sound familiar: The Riverwest Market, 53212 Town Hall Meetings, neighborhood clean ups, and (when we are not restricted by COVID-19) Center Street Daze and the 4th of July Firework Celebration at Gordon Park. She also connects residents to resources including financial, housing, and safety resources.
