Charlotte Attenborough: In Pursuit of Peace- The Betty Levin Legacy
March 3, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Charlotte and her husband Allen “Andy” Attenborough are longtime residents of Maplewood. Charlotte served her community through her work at Essex County College, where she was employed for 26 years.
After becoming aware of food insecurity as an assistant dean, she developed and opened one of the first food pantries on a New Jersey college campus. It was during this period that Charlotte invited E. Betty Levin to meet with the director of the college’s Urban Issues Institute to discuss the feasibility of establishing “Peace” concepts as part of the Newark public school academic curricula.
Charlotte has also served her community by participating as a board member for a number of causes: education, the arts, low-cost psychotherapy and an urban girls mentoring program. She is a proud alumna of the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts High, where she studied Fine Art. Currently Charlotte teaches English as a second language for Literacy New Jersey.
