Lucy Arthur-Paratley

Lucy first volunteered for a campaign in middle school, making phone calls from the floor of the county Democratic headquarters. Since then, she’s made calls from the floor of many other field offices (and, during the pandemic, her bedroom), working on races ranging from city council to president. She is an AmeriCorps alum, where she taught 8th graders. After leading a middle school pilot program and five school sites, her students inspired her to get back into politics and she brings everything they taught her about good teaching to her work as an organizer. Currently, Lucy is the Director of Programs with New Politics and the New Politics Leadership Academy. In her spare time, she likes to dance, read, and listen to podcasts.
