Bio: Marisol Bello was the Director of Content Strategy and Development for the Center for Community Change and the Center for Community Change Action. Prior to her joining the Center, she was a journalist for 23 years, working in newsrooms from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh to Detroit and Washington, D.C. She was most recently a national reporter for USA TODAY, where she spent eight years covering high-profile events such as the recession of the late 2000s and its impact on American families; the death of Nelson Mandela and the future of South Africa without him and the deadly earthquake in Haiti that left an already poverty-stricken nation even further devastated. Her stories focused on the lives of Americans like her immigrant family, who worked hard and still struggled to make ends meet. Her passion to tell those stories continues at the Center.
