Prior to joining FCCP in 2016 Alexis served as the Senior Director of Programs for the State Voices network and led efforts to support and expand the work of state-based nonpartisan organizations in civic engagement, civic access and civic representation. Alexis brings a deep background in community organizing and over ten years of experience in convening and facilitation of coalitions, public policy, administrative management, issue organizing and strategic planning. She has developed and implemented workshops and curriculum on topics including racial equity, power and privilege, and non-profit management, and has helped create strategic plans and sustainability frameworks for new and established organizations. Previously, Alexis served as Director of Youth Reclaiming Our Communities and as Executive Director of Wisconsin Voices, where she founded the Our Democracy 2020 Table, which works to expand voting rights and strengthen democracy in the state. Because of her work, recent attacks on Election Day Voter Registration were stopped. In addition, Alexis played a strategic role in passing a historic Living Wage ordinance in Milwaukee County as part of the WI Economic Justice Steering Committee. When not at work, Alexis can be found cheering on the Green Bay Packers and trying out new recipes for family and friends.
