Liz Carlson is a RISE AmeriCorps member serving with EMBARC Des Moines.
Liz is serving her second AmeriCorps term working in community education. She moved to Des Moines in 2019 from Chicago, where she worked as a public educator at the Adler Planetarium.
Liz is passionate about building welcoming and just communities, and decided to join EMBARC after being inspired by the broad spectrum of work the organization does to help refugees all across the state of Iowa.
“I want to be a part of impactful, community-based work that breaks down barriers to resources - that’s why I joined RISE AmeriCorps.”
