Maggie Heraty

Maggie (she/her) is an organizer, artist, and naturalist living in Durham, NC – occupied Occaneechi Saponi land. Though she is originally from Chicago, she feels lucky to have found her way to the South, where she is a Leader in the Triangle, NC chapter of Resource Generation. Under her leadership and that of her brilliant co-leaders, the chapter has built close relationships with POC, queer, and working class-led organizations – including Southern Vision Alliance, Southerners on New Ground (SONG), Durham for All, and the Durham Community Land Trust. Maggie has also organized with SONG for their Black Mamas and Black August Bail Out Days and sits on Solidaire Network’s Movement R&D Grant Committee – a group of donors and movement leaders that make grant decisions collectively. She can often be found painting, teaching middle schoolers about geology and environmental justice, scheming about Southern movement fundraising, and tending to her native plant garden.
