Farewell and Thank You to Anthony Giancatarino

Today I have the bittersweet honor of bidding adieu to long-serving CSI staff member Anthony Giancatarino; after seven years with CSI, Anthony is leaving CSI to continue his work closer to his home and his family.

Anthony presenting at the 2016 Energy Democracy Symposium

Anthony started at CSI as a research intern in 2009, and since then has anchored our work advancing racial equity within our Energy Democracy and Food Equity first as Researcher, then Coordinator, and ultimately Director of Policy & Strategy:

But beyond these (and hundreds other) tangibles, Anthony truly represented CSI’s core values. His work demonstrated a deep commitment to racial equity and to the communities of color most impacted by structural racial inequity. He consistently demonstrated accountability to grassroots organizers and activists of color by centering their leadership, promoting community ownership, and directing greater resources to support their work.

In short, Anthony modeled for all of us at CSI what it means to be in a movement for racial justice, and we will proudly continue to follow his lead.

From all of us at CSI–past and present–we thank you, Anthony, for all that you brought to CSI and to the greater racial justice movement. And thanks to (CSI founder and former President) Maya Wiley, for spotting Anthony’s talent and bringing him to the CSI family.

Anthony will continue his work in racial equity and the environment, focusing his efforts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

If you have worked with Anthony or have been a participant at one of his workshops or talks, please share a message of goodwill to Anthony on Twitter.

With love and every hope for Anthony’s continued success,
