She has served as manager of the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights (OHR) since 2010.
Sunshine Mathon, Executive Director, said, “ I have found the leadership and wisdom with which Charlene engages the broader community, professionally and personally, is both impactful and inspiring. Charlene’s spirit of hope, her sharp insights, and her commitment to Equity will reinforce and enhance the direction of our work towards sustained, positive impact. I feel profoundly honored to partner with Charlene, co-leading Piedmont Housing as an organization committed to justice and equity throughout our community.”
As Deputy Director, Green will steward program-related services including rental community management, resident services, housing and financial counseling, and economic opportunity programs. She will also support the advancement of an organizational analysis and framework deeply committed to racial equity and justice.
Green is known throughout Charlottesville and the surrounding region for her inspiring dedication to educating the community on the local history of race and institutional power, including the destruction of Vinegar Hill and the role of confederate statues in our parks.
