Radiah Shabazz is ISC’s U.S. Programs Communications Manager. In this role, she advises the team’s overall communications strategy, manages the delivery of the team’s various communications needs, and broadens the generation and dissemination of content that elevates the intersection of climate change and equity.

Prior to ISC, Radiah worked in the Office of the President at the Ounce of Prevention Fund, a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing early learning opportunities for low-income families. Before that, she spent three years at the National Housing Conference, focused on affordable housing, where she managed the organization’s day to day marketing and communications needs, including content curation, website maintenance, media relations, social media, and newsletters. Radiah has also done extensive work in advocacy and national community organizing with On Earth Peace and has experience and expertise in advancing racial equity.
She holds a master’s degree in social work from the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration and a BA in journalism from Howard University.
