Nyaunu Stevens joins NCCJ as Associate Director of Programs
National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) is excited to announce the appointment of Nyaunu Stevens as their new Associate Director of Programs. In this role, Stevens will be responsible for the overall direction, production and oversight of all aspects of NCCJ’s youth and adult social justice education programs.
Trained as an academic and an actress, Stevens, a resident of Ashford, Connecticut has served as a Lead Teaching Artist with Cleveland Public Theater, where she worked to bring theater education to disadvantaged youth. She has also worked as an adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut and Quinebaug Valley Community College, where she taught in the fields of Sociology and Women’s Studies. Stevens holds a Master’s in Sociology from the University of Connecticut and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a minor in Theater from Cleveland State University.
“Nyaunu is a passionate advocate for social justice and education,” said Cynthia Martin, NCCJ President and CEO. “She brings to NCCJ a wealth of expertise as an educator and experience in the world of social justice. What’s more, Nyaunu is a powerful presenter and facilitator. We’re looking forward to the impact she’ll be making on NCCJ’s middle and high school and workplace programs.”
“I am beyond thrilled to be joining NCCJ,” said Stevens. “This is an organization whose work I’ve long admired. Given the rise of bias incidents and hate crimes and the increase in school bullying, NCCJ’s work is more critical than ever. I look forward to being a part of the NCCJ team and assisting with promoting and facilitating these important programs.”
