Rachel Rains Winslow

Rachel Rains Winslow has joined the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission board of directors.

Winslow is an assistant professor of history at Westmont College, director of Westmont’s Center for Social Entrepreneurship, and co-director of Westmont’s Initiative for Public Dialogue.

She is the author of The Best Possible Immigrants: International Adoption and the American Family (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2017).

She currently serves as a fellow with the Kettering Foundation, working on the intersection between public deliberation and local action as a way to engage students in democracy.

Her teaching, research, and community work bring together her interest in U.S. social policy, social change practices, and American political culture, the Rescue Mission said.

Winslow will serve the local nonprofit organization in fulfilling its mission to provide physical, emotional and spiritual resources to all who struggle with homelessness and addiction in the community, the Rescue Mission said.

Other Santa Barbara Rescue Mission directors are: Krista Frohling, Ramon Gupta, Paul Johnson, Kiah Jordan, Robert Kates, James Kinzler, Joyce McCullough, Byron Myers, Mathew Neal, Ian Ritchie and Ed Wimberly.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
