REI’s 2020 Innovation Fellows are conducting research and putting it in to practice for their Co-Implementation Plans. Our own research assistant, Heather Mahoney, sat down with each of our fellows to discuss what they’ve done so far with their research and how it will benefit communities both in and outside the scope of COVID-19’s impacts.
Angela Barbash: Community Capital Investing: Mapping the Ecosystem
