Rispoli is the executive director of We Are The Next (Next) a pending non-profit based in downtown, one that aims to educate communities about ties between sustainability and historic resources and to shift the mindset of future generations. Changing the way people think now and helping them recognize value and connect with architecture can change the tenor of future conservation efforts; if she can get today’s youth to fall in love with architecture, tomorrow’s City Council members and developers might have a greater penchant for preservation. That’s part of the reason she started the Next.
