Sharene Azimi has been “enjoying working at the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN) as communications director since 2020. The job puts me in a movement of people working to provide credible news and information to every community—something we believe is important for, you know, the future of American democracy. In between work and raising my two boys as a divorced mom in the New Jersey exurbs, I’ve gone back to the things I love, like tango dancing, choir singing, and travel. I get together regularly with Miriam Temin, and I was delighted that Stephanie Donohue Pilla and Brian Gottesman came to the backyard dance party I threw for my second 50th birthday this summer.”
