Senior Vice President, External Relations
Carrie is the Senior Vice President of External Relations.
Most recently, Carrie served as the Director of Coalitions and Communications for the Justice Action Network and the Coalition for Public Safety.
In those roles, she worked with partners and advocates from across the political spectrum to develop effective, diverse, and multi-layered messaging strategies on federal and state legislation. She managed earned and paid campaigns to elevate champions of bipartisan criminal justice reform and highlight support from law enforcement, business leaders, civil rights and liberties advocates, athletes, and directly-impacted people. Her work was recognized by the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network and the American Association of Political Consultants.
At the Coalition for Public Safety, Carrie spearheaded a nationwide competitive grant program, identifying and supporting innovation in divergent areas of criminal justice, including creating collateral consequences training programs for prosecutors, providing medication assisted treatment inside correctional facilities, establishing culturally responsive community supervision programs, and removing barriers to employment for people with criminal records.
She spent more than a decade in electoral politics, managing grassroots campaigns for candidates at the local, state and federal levels. Carrie worked on the campaigns of President Barack Obama, Senator Jon Tester, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear, and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, among others, and was part of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Independent Expenditure program in 2016.
