GGNW Leadership


Eboni Brown


Executive Director

Eboni hails from sunny Orange County California and some how found herself in not so sunny Portland. A Project Manager turned Nonprofit Diva, Eboni spends her free time volunteering at a couple local organizations geared toward empowerment and radical change, travels every chance she gets, stirs up trouble with her daughter Olive, gets into anything to do with the beach or river, having a dance party, dressing up, and really enjoys meeting new folks. A lifer in the social service world and she can’t imagine working in any other field.

Rich Flamm


Director of Programming

Born of the sunshine and 80s, Rich grew up in California but spent time globe trotting New Zealand, Alaska, and Colorado. After participating in global outreach teams to multiple countries he put down roots in Portland, Oregon. With a background as a journalist correspondent and navigating the business world, he knows how to ruin a party by asking obnoxious questions. For some reason, he earned a degree in English with an emphasis in editing and writing. Rich is a huge nerd and spends much of his free time contemplating nerd-like things or planning his next big backpacking trip.
