Coalition Member Spotlight: Zirwat Chowdhury

Meet Zirwat Chowdhury, Bennington’s Community Development Director. You may have seen her around town with her notebook or on her bike peddling down Bennington’s side streets.

Zirwat is Alliance for Community Transformations’ Government Sector Representative.

We asked her: Why did you join ACT?

“I joined ACT because a vibrant community is the fruit of our positive ACTion.”


Thank you Zirwat! We couldn’t agree more.

When she’s not at ACT’s coalition meetings, Zirwat’s working with and building relationships with partnering organizations. One of her latest projects is the Stark Street Pop Up Park. For more information, (or if you’d like to volunteer) click here, and be sure to come out Father’s Day weekend, June 16-17 to the Stark Street Playground.
