👋 Leader Profile: Meet Jo Banner​ – Founder, Descendants Project


Jo Banner is the co-founder and co-director of the Descendants Project in Louisiana with her sister Joy Banner. The Descendants Project is an emerging organization committed to the intergenerational healing and flourishing of the Black descendant community in the Louisiana river parishes, which hold the intersecting histories of enslavement, settler colonialism, and environmental degradation. Through programming, education, advocacy, and outreach, The Descendants Project is committed to reversing the vagrancies of slavery through healing and restorative work.

Jo is participating in Halt the Harm’s Summer Welcome Committee Session. She is looking forward to working with the Welcome Committee to connect with other frontline people, share her experiences, and learn from theirs.
