Sally Sharp, Grassroots Regional Coordinator
Sally brings 20+ years of experience as an elementary school teacher to Great Old Broads, and while grassroots organizing is new for her, she is not new to advocacy. She recently coordinated the energy justice campaign Bring Power Home 2020 in Pueblo, Colorado, managed an issue-based campaign with the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, and worked on Conservation Colorado’s Protégete Voter Registration Drive.
She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from California State University, Northridge, with a minor in Spanish. While in college she lived in Mexico and Honduras for 14 months and carries a special spot in her heart for the immigrant community. In her spare time she is a volunteer dispatcher for the Colorado Immigrant Rapid Response Hotline.
Sally’s passion for the outdoors springs from family camping and hiking trips, especially fishing with her dad. She passed on her love for the outdoors to her now-grown children. The fight to keep our public lands whole and untarnished drives her commitment to conservation.
