Mary Holiman, Communications & Organizing Director

Mary Holiman has years of experience volunteering with and working for organizations centered around bettering families and their communities through providing support, after-school programs, positive discipline training, and other resources, with her most recent experience focused on providing violence and substance misuse prevention education and trauma support to K-12 school-aged youth. 

As the new Organizing and Communications Director at Rise, she is excited to use her background in criminology & psychology, her passion for media, and interest in reforming the system that criminalizes poverty to help create change. Instead of being a “voice for the voiceless,” she believes in the power of those affected to speak for themselves. She holds a Master’s in Public Health with a focus on Community Health Science and is an advocate for interdisciplinary approaches to well-being.
