Development Associate

Risa Nagel is the Development Associate of the Equity in Education Coalition. As a fairly recent pupil of an underfunded public high school and over-resourced private university, Risa has first-hand experience of the gross inequalities eroding our education system.

Risa previously worked as an organizer for a variety of campaigns including increasing accessibility and understanding of Seattle’s new Democracy Voucher program; calling on major food companies to stop overusing medically important antibiotics in their factory farms, and preventing the opening of public lands to uranium mining. Last year Risa started with EEC under the Communications Fellowship, and now will be part of EEC’s development team.
