Introducing Suyapa Miranda

Incoming Executive Director

Prepare + Prosper is pleased to announce Suyapa Miranda as our next executive director.

In a year of unprecedented change, the board of directors sought a leader who will:

· Lead our experienced, dedicated staff in continuing to deliver excellent programs and services

· Bring a deep understanding of economic justice and the adverse impact finance and economic systems have had on low-income communities

· Collaborate with our stakeholders, especially on advancing racial equity

Suyapa brings a breadth of experience in developing and implementing programs that serve communities impacted by systemic economic injustice. She has successfully managed teams, built relationships with community partners, led fundraising efforts, and worked closely with staff to address complex problems. Her passion and deep commitment to integrating equity will embolden our staff, board, and partners as we uphold our values and advance our mission.

Suyapa comes to Prepare + Prosper with an extensive history of 20 years serving the community in various capacities. She most recently served as the Director of Operations at New Native Theatre and as Executive Director for Saint Anthony Park Community Council. Her legacy includes developing an equity committee that implemented a framework for policies, projects, and issues rooted in equitable solutions.

In her own words: “I’m thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to lead a remarkable organization with such a dedicated and talented staff, board, and volunteers.”

Suyapa will begin her work with P+P on Monday, March 8.
