Nancy Yarbrough – Lead Organizer
My name is Nancy Yarbrough I am currently a Lead Organizer for Peace Action WI. This allows me to promote and provoke change in the grassroots community.
My job includes but not limited to implementation of political campaigns, volunteer and membership recruitment and outreach, event planning and implementation, coalition and partnership outreach and development and general office and administrative duties.
I’m also the founder of Fresh Start Learning LLC. This deals with outreach and advocacy for human trafficking and domestic issues and disparities along with professional development and job retention training.
I am fairly new to the grassroots movement. I started out advocating for FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) when I lost my mother January 2014. This was a pivotal time for me I have always been one to stand up for truth and justice I have been doing so for 20+ years for varies issues such as education, health and wellness, environmental conservation domestic advocacy and equality for all. When I lost my mom I moved away from corporate America to join in full time for advocacy education and justice outreach.
In my spare time I work with children in the inner city hosting Sunday school, human trafficking seminars, life skills as well as promoting youth programs. I am the proud mother of five beautiful children and two adorable grandchildren. I am looking forward to what the future holds for me in the grassroots movement. I plan on going to school to sharpen my knowledge of media outreach, public speaking, and grant writing to name a few. The future looks bright and I am hopeful that everything will fall into place.
