Alliance for Youth Organizing Board


Whitney Porter

Operations & Finance Consultant

Whitney Porter brings a wealth of operations, finance, event planning, and strategic thinking to the Alliance board. Whitney believes “that change can only happen when everyday, ordinary people speak up and ask for life to be better. This can’t happen if people’s voices are suppressed.” We couldn’t agree more.


Alexis Anderson-Reed

Executive Director, State Voices

Alexis Anderson-Reed is no stranger to youth organizing. Hailing from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Alexis founded Youth Reclaiming Our Communities. She shared “I have seen first hand both the individual transformation of young people when they are meaningfully engaged and invested in, and the collective impact that young people can have when they come together to change their community.” We can’t wait to build alongside Alexis!
