Our Team


RPOP makes it a priority to hire staff and work with an advisory board that is representative of the community we serve. RPOP's work is led by a majority Black staff. Because of our range of unique skills, the RPOP team has been able to reach hundreds of Russell residents, businesses, faith leaders, and other community members.







Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is made up of Russell residents, business owners, community members, and partners. The Advisory Board participates in meetings and decision making and supports community engagement.
