Social Change, Politics, Strategy, Parenting and Moving - and doing it all peacefully.
Elana Shneyer works from a starting point of dignity and respect for all human beings, and believes that we make progress toward improving the world by practicing our values in all that we do. She currently works as an independent consultant focused on advocacy, organizational growth, strategic planning, and performance management enhancement. Her consultancy work focuses on helping government better serve the people it is supposed to represent. Prior to consulting, Elana served as the Chief of Staff to New York State Assembly Member Daniel O’Donnell, where she focused on criminal justice reform, preserving affordable housing and improving public education. Before that, Elana worked for more than 10 years as a community organizer in the affordable housing movement in NYC--most significantly at the Pratt Area Community Council (now known as IMPACCT Brooklyn), a community development corporation in Brooklyn. Elana is a member of the Board of Directors of her Jewish community, Romemu and a graduate of the Wexner Heritage Program. She holds a BA in cultural anthropology from Reed College and is a proud graduate of the Bronx High School of Science. Elana lives with her husband, son and daughter in Goldens Bridge, NY (ah!).
