Maria Nakae


I'm a movement builder, communications strategist, resource mobilizer and funder organizer who has spent my career working in and with social justice movements to advance racial, gender and economic justice. I currently serve as the Senior Engagement Director at Justice Funders, a nonprofit organization that works with foundations to re-imagine and practice a new approach to philanthropy that redistributes wealth, democratizes power and shifts economic control to communities in a way that is truly regenerative for people and the planet. I'm also a member of the Hella Heart Oakland Giving Circle, a drummer with BoomShake Music, and mama of two rambunctious girls.
