Valerie Red-Horse Mohl

My J.E.D.I Why:My mother was an activist in the natural products industry and I had the privilege of growing up with organic and raw foods which I believe lay important physical and mental groundwork for my lifelong health and wellness. As an adult working with tribal communities where natural nutritious products are often scarce, I realize the importance of JEDI’s essential work and am mission aligned and passionate about their industry-wide commitment to justice, diversity, equity and inclusion.
