Wanda Salaman

An Afro-Latina who moved from Puerto Rico to the arson prone South Bronx as a child, Wanda Salaman responded to the conditions in her community by getting involved in organizing at age 14. She has worked in the Bronx ever since, for the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition and then Mothers on the Move (MOM), where in her first six months she organized 18 tenant associations and was promoted to Co-Director. Wanda has been Executive Director of MOM since 2005, developing low-income leadership and working on the interrelated issues of education, environment, housing and employment. She recently launched a pilot green jobs training program for pubic housing residents, which grew out of a residents’ year-long Community Visioning Process.
