Alison Cunningham is an activist and public leader in New Haven, CT. Currently, she serves as the Director of Professional Formation for Yale University’s Divinity School and this month she speaks with Mary about how circumstances of climate change may be met with activism and spirit.

Spirit has always been at the center of Alison's career. She points to the practical expression of spirit when prior to her Divinity School position, Alison spent most of two decades as Chief Executive Officer for Columbus House, also in New Haven and a nonprofit organization devoted to providing homes and shelter for people who need them.
