Danielle Spradley is the Digital Communications Associate for the ACLU of Missouri. She joins us after working in the Missouri State House Of Representatives as a legislative aide.
Her time in the legislature has allowed her to obtain in-depth knowledge of public policy and the inner workings of government. While also gaining firsthand experience in how to generate policy change through effective messaging. She spearheaded office communications, including newsletters, press releases, managing media presence, and speeches.
She has a passion for criminal justice reform, labor rights, education equity, and civil liberties, which has translated from activism to public service. She went from artmaking to teaching, from teaching to protest, onto campaigns, and working under the dome. Teaching in economically distressed schools, she realized that legislative change was necessary. She left teaching to work as a Legislative Aide in the Missouri House of Representatives for 78th District Rep Bruce Franks Jr.
Danielle previously worked with the ACLU as the campaign manager on prosecutorial reform in St. Louis and Cole County, which moved the narrative across party lines and the state to end cash bail.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Memphis College Of Art located in Memphis Tennesse.
