Meet the Coaches

  • Abby Levine

    Before going off to college, Abby lived in five states and Canada – the perfect preparation for all her travel to conduct trainings across the country.

  • “AFJ gives groups the confidence to lobby and advocate because we know the rules. And that gives us the freedom to focus our energy and skills on our mission and being the best advocates we can on the issues we care about…we have used the hotline many times over the years, which we have come to affectionately refer to as the ‘lobbying bat phone.’ That service is invaluable.”

    - Nebraska Appleseed
  • “AFJ has helped us think proactively in how we approach our work in legislative and non-partisan electoral processes…The expertise that AFJ shares has helped us become more confident and more sophisticated.”

    - Border Network for Human Rights
  • “As a small non-profit, it’s good to know we’ve got a team of smart lawyers with AFJ in our corner!”

    - Katie Ashmore, Jews United for Justice
  • “I do not think I could have survived as an activist without the help that AFJ gave me.”

    - Jehmu Greene, former president, Rock the Vote & Women’s Media Center
  • The Alliance for Justice is an unparalleled resource for the nonprofit community.


    - Paul Sonn, Legal Co-Director, National Employment Law Project
  • It would cost a lot for us to hire lawyers to advise us on how to avoid the pitfalls and problems that Alliance for Justice helps us recognize.


    - Rob Moore, Environmental Advocates of New York
  • “Thanks to the guidance of the Alliance for Justice we have a robust nonprofit sector.”

    - Rep. Donna Edwards
  • “AFJ walked us through hosting a successful candidates’ forum. By e-mail and phone, they answered tricky legal questions and helped us think about how to be effective but not put ourselves at risk.”

    - Jenne Wood-Taylor, PACT Community Organizer
  • “AFJ’s work ensures that voices that are typically left out of critically important public debates get heard. That is a powerful mission.”

    - Marcia Egbert, George Gund Foundation
  • “AFJ’s training was outstanding – thoughtful, strategic and incredibly informative.”
