Meet the People Behind the Platform | Rose Stump
Welcome to JustFund’s People Behind the Platform series, where we introduce our incredible team! Today, we are thrilled to introduce Rose Stump, JustFund’s Operations Manager.
“Before joining this incredible JustFund team, I spent 8 years organizing in various justice spaces in the south. I cut my teeth organizing with the Farmworker Movement in Florida and North Carolina, where I learned about the importance of forming strong relationships and building people power. I then moved to South Carolina to organize with a grassroots interfaith organization, where I led the housing and transportation justice campaigns.
When I heard about what JustFund was doing, I had to be part of it! I spent many years with small organizations fighting to keep the lights on and getting locked out of the inequitable funding structures in philanthropy. I believe people and orgs on the frontlines of justice work must be trusted with the resources they need to fight against the violent power structures in our communities, and build a liberated future.
Outside of JustFund, I’m a personal trainer and try to help folks fall in love with strength training + kettlebells. I’m passionate about making the “fitness” industry more accessible and joyous, and specialize in coaching folks who are new to lifting or have felt excluded in traditional fitness spaces. I won’t lie, I love some good old fashioned step aerobics. I also love connecting with new people!! Find me on LinkedIn, I’d love to grab virtual coffee.”
