Chad Uhlenhopp Jones

Community Investment Network

Chad is Executive Director of the Community Investment Network, which inspires, connects and strengthens African Americans and people of color to leverage their collective resources to create the change they wish to see. As the grandson of a Tuskegee Airman, son of a former diplomat and generations of women who teach, Chad is a descendent of integrated schools and U.S. foreign policy.

He roots for the unexpected, unpredictable and the underdog. He is a member of the Black Immigration Network, Resource Generation, and the Freelancers Union. Chad is also on the Board of stone circles at the Stone House in Mebane, NC. 
Chad lives in Santa Fe with his partner, living a life full of green chile and sopapillas, hiking and hot springs, baking and cooking. He frequents the public library, small farms and the grocery store. He cherishes opportunities that blend economics and history, which he studied at Macalester College in the Twin Cities and the University of Colorado, Boulder.
