Shannon Duncan Bodwell is the Donor and Online Communications Coordinator at Grassroots International. At Grassroots International, Shannon combines her love for writing with her passion for justice and technical expertise by coordinating the direct mail, social networking and online programs and oversees the organization’s interns and volunteers. “Working with Grassroots’ e-activists and social networks are great. It’s rewarding to see the results of focused action to create change whether it’s knowing we’ve shut down a decision maker’s inbox or seeing our actions tweeted around the world.” When not tweeting, Shannon is an avid knitter, gardener, cook and composter.
Shannon brings over 13 years working in the nonprofit sector at organizations like the Conservation Law Foundation, Ibis Reproductive Health, Northeast Action and the Women’s Bar Foundation. She holds a B.A. in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College and an International Baccalaureate degree from the United World College – USA.
