We are very pleased to announce that Stephanie Teatro has been selected as TIRRC's new Director of Advocacy.
Stephanie Teatro joined the TIRRC staff in January 2012 as the Policy and Civic Engagement Coordinator. Over the past year, Stephanie has demonstrated exceptional leadership and talent in directing our legislative advocacy work in the Tennessee General Assembly and our successful voter engagement campaign around the November election. Prior to joining the staff of TIRRC, Stephanie was a union organizer with AFSCME, organizing public employees in Alaska, Florida, and Wisconsin.
As Director, Stephanie will lead the Advocacy and Education team in building the capacity of our grassroots leaders to speak for themselves, to engage fully in the civic process, and to advocate for policies that make it easier for everyone to fully participate in public life. Stephanie will continue to directly manage our local, state, and federal policy and civic engagement work, while overseeing our Welcoming Tennessee Initiative, our Citizenship Program, and our Strategic Communications work.
Please join us in congratulating Stephanie!
