Jenny Lujan and Claire Wiley

Jenny Lujan is a board member for Chrysalis, where she provides leadership around social and racial justice.

Jenny’s efforts help Chrysalis promote mental health and substance use recovery in our community through work opportunities that encourage hope, healing, and wellness.

Claire Wiley is a volunteer for Wisconsin Wetlands Association, where she translated the organization’s brochure into Spanish to reach a wider audience about the value of wetlands. She also improved the organization’s website and online communications.

Thank you, Jenny and Claire!
