What's coming up?
Nancy Amidei coming to teach December 5 and 12 at Keystone:
From 1992-2008, Nancy Amidei was on the faculty of the University of Washington School of Social Work.
Today she continues to direct the Civic Engagement Project, which works with non-profit organizations throughout the country. CEP offers advocacy training, speeches, workshops, and resource materials, for work at federal, state, or local levels.
A writer, teacher, and advocate, Ms. Amidei has been involved in social policy from both inside and outside government. She is a former Director of the Food Research and Action Center (a national anti-hunger group). She also served in the Carter Administration as a Deputy Assistant Secretary in the federal Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (now DHHS), and in the early 70’s she was on the Staff of the U.S. Senate Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs. For many years she wrote a weekly email bulletin that described the Washington State legislative process. Focused chiefly on health, human services, and civil rights issues, POLICY WATCH helped readers understand what happens as a legislative Session unfolds.
During the 1980s she wrote a weekly column that appeared in newspapers around the country, and did commentaries for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.”
Activities include co-authorship of a Legislative Simulation, co-authorship of a curriculum for an annual 3-day Advocacy Camp, and service on a variety of national and local non-profit agency boards.
