Alan is the Communications Coordinator and Office Manager for the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations. He is primarily responsible for the maintenance and growth of the Episcopal Public Policy Network and the resources aimed at educating, equipping and engaging the church in policy advocacy. Prior to this, he lived and worked in Haiti with the Young Adult Service Corps, spending two years in Cange working in economic development and communication and one year in Cap-Haitien with the St. Barnabas Agriculture Center as a project manager for their revitalization program. He holds a BS in economics from Clemson University in South Carolina.
Raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Ashley Coleman moved to New Orleans, Louisiana in 2006 to pursue a Bachelors of Arts in Latin American Studies and Political Science from Tulane University. ESL teaching experiences gained during her undergraduate years both domestically and abroad in Nicaragua prompted her to relocate to Porto Alegre, Brazil following graduation where she worked with adult English learners for two years. Returning to the U.S. in 2013 with a solidified commitment to the field of ESL education, Ashley moved to Nashville to serve as the Adult Education Manager for the Nashville International Center of Empowerment and completed her Masters in TESOL from the University of Southern California. Both her Masters coursework and professional experiences advocating for both young and adult immigrant and refugee English learners while in Nashville spurred a desire to work on areas of immigrant rights and education policy. Since returning to Atlanta, Ashley has been fortunate to find a home in New American Pathways where she serves as the Civic Engagement Manager, leading efforts on advocacy, voter engagement, and civic education initiatives for immigrants, refugees, and receiving communities in Georgia.
