Demi Jo Carr (they/them)

Grants & Program Support Coordinator

From Milwaukee to Beijing as a University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee (UWM) undergraduate, then to Ferguson, MO as a master’s student at UWM, Demi Jo is carving out a uniquely relevant research path.  On the advice of UWM professors who encouraged them to ground their research in the community near their childhood home in Milwaukee’s Lincoln Creek neighborhood, Carr was one of the first students enrolled in UWM’s new sustainable peace-building master’s program.  As an upbeat public health professional and sustainable peace-builder with extensive experience coordinating programs and research projects, Demi Jo is honored to share their skills to further the mission of Diverse & Resilient.  Demi Jo’s personal philosophy in leadership and life is that you must be the change you wish to see in the world.
