Kelli Risitano

Director of Advocacy and Healing

Kelli has been motivated by love for the last fourteen years to end domestic and sexual violence by building interconnectedness with community and nature.  Nadeem Aslam wrote, “Pull a thread here and you’ll find it’s attached to the rest of the world.” Kelli believes that love is a core value that connects and attaches us all to one another and to our natural world.  Her personal and professional life are centered around love and interconnectedness– creating more, fostering what exists, and searching for it in places where it seems to have ceased to exist.  Kelli’s purpose is deeply connected to that of the Vermont Network’s which is to create a world free of oppression where actions, beliefs, and systems support all people to thrive.  She holds dear that with love and each other this beautiful transformation can be achieved.
