Andrea D. Shorter Senior Manager of Community Relations
Photo to come.
A newcomer to the Out and Equal team starting in August 2013, Andrea brings 30 plus years of experience as an accomplished advocate, non-profit manager, public official, political strategist, and most recently as a consultant with Atlas Leadership Strategies.
Prior to coming on board at Out and Equal, Andrea was the Director of Marriage Equality and Coalition Strategies at Equality California, where she built an unprecedented statewide coalition of over 100 diverse organizations, community, political, and business leaders to advance and restore same sex marriage equality after the passage of Proposition 8. At EQCA she was able to bring her experiences as a long time LGBT advocate, including having previously worked as the Deputy Executive Director of the NAMES Project Foundation/AIDS Memorial Quilt where she managed and developed its vast domestic and international chapters network, and developed initiatives to expand the historic Quilt's reach as an HIV/AIDS education tool into middle schools, universities, state and local governments, and globally into South Africa.
Hailing from Indiana, she is a proud Hoosier who, after moving to California, became a distinguished graduate of Whittier College. Her first full-time job was as a volunteer coordinator for the 1988 re-election campaign of a California State Assembly Legislator representing Riverside County, then the fastest growing county in the nation. After a resounding victory, she was hired as Assembly District Field Representative attending to a diversity of constituent needs and issues to help formulate needed legislative response.
In November 1991, Andrea relocated from Riverside to San Francisco, to join her younger brother following his graduation from Stanford University, and to immerse herself in the vibrant LGBT community and civil and human rights movements. As a public education campaign organizer for low-income families, she made her mark by leading a campaign to protect the state constitutionally provided voter rights of disenfranchised ex-offenders, including jailed inmates. Her advocacy for voting rights eventually led to a complaint against the California Governor over his refusal to implement the Voter Registration Act of 1993. The case was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, where the lower courts' rulings in her favor was upheld.
Following this definitive milestone, she was recruited by the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice, where she co-developed and directed what would become a nationally replicated program to provide alternatives to detention to non-violent youth offenders. The program remains a national model, cited by the Department of Justice, and awarded by the Harvard Kennedy School of Government's Excellence in Governance program. Before retiring from CJCJ as Deputy Executive Director in 2004, she led other successful landmark initiatives, including co-authoring several publications that remain key references for state and local legislative and programmatic advances before retiring from CJCJ in 2004 as its Deputy Executive Director.
