Caitlin Duffy

Senior Associate for Learning and Engagement

Caitlin is a senior associate for learning and engagement who coordinates web-based programming and in-person presentations for NCRP, and serves as the organizational link to the movement for environmental and climate justice. She has contributed to research and writing for Philamplify since August 2013. She has over five years of experience in the nonprofit sector, including direct service, education, and advocacy.

A native of New Jersey, Caitlin’s introduction to social justice began with a youth-led anti-Big Tobacco movement for which she was a statewide leader. She later grew strong relationships with local Central American communities, inspiring her college research and extracurricular leadership on immigration and the rights of migrants. As an undergraduate, she began her nonprofit career providing counseling for home energy assistance, English language instruction, camp programming for youth with disabilities, and child abuse prevention workshops. Her experiences led her to graduate studies in human rights and social responsibility in Washington, DC. While studying for her degree, she conducted research in Peru on the social impact of mining, led a service learning trip to an autonomous housing cooperative in Mexico, studied abroad at the United Nations mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica, and interned with an anti-racist grassroots organization in our nation’s capital.

Caitlin holds a M.A. in Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs from American University’s School of International Service and a B.A. in Spanish from The College of New Jersey. She serves on the Board of Instigators of the Diverse City Fund, the EPIP DC Steering Committee, and as a lead coordinator for the DC TimeBank. In 2015 Caitlin was a member of Exponent Philanthropy’s Next Gen Fellows Program. She is passionate about the study of race and racism, a plant-based lifestyle, and recycling.
