Working Toward a Healthier America, County by County
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Our unwavering mission is to help extraordinary people tell their stories for the good of the world.
For years, Indigenous groups have advocated outside of COP walls — holding press briefings at picnic tables, leading demonstrations, telling stories of their communities and demanding to be heard. Their activism led them from the periphery of global climate events to the very nucleus where negotiations take place.
While donating to causes is one way to engage and support missions like these, it’s not the only answer. We need dedicated volunteers and mentors who can devote their time and act as positive role models and help bridge communities.
Whether from our Nairobi or Bethesda offices, we’re committed to supporting the changemakers of the world, and that starts within our own walls. All Burnessers are valued and respected for their particular talents and contributions, welcomed into the process of company decision-making and supported in their personal and professional dreams.
