Liz Gannon-Graydon, along with her husband Rob, is the co-founder of What BETTER Looks Like, an organization that taps into the creative potential of people to help solve problems in their local communities.
Liz taught middle school Social Studies for 16 years. It was during her years as a middle school teacher that she gained the inspiration and the tools for the What Better Looks Like Campaign. She spent 5 years working with Hour Children, a NY-based organization that works to support incarcerated women and their families. As part of her work there, she started a program for the teenage children of incarcerated mothers. She has facilitated nonviolence programs at C.W. Post, Pace University, Nassau Community College, SUNY Farmingdale, and through the United Nations Church Center.
Liz is the mother of two young sons, and is committed to the creation of beloved community.
"For me, taking the time to notice the people around you, and treating them with kindness is what BETTER looks like."
