Carrie Santoro is the Executive Director of Pennsylvania Stands Up, a single mom, and a proud working-class organizer. Prior to becoming the Executive Director at PA Stands Up, she was a founding member of the Lehigh Valley chapter and the Chair of the Delegate Assembly. She has held senior organizing and communications roles in electoral campaigns and labor, faith, and immigrants’ rights organizations. Carrie wants PASU to help to end the shame and blame working people carry for ourselves and each other, which can only happen through intentional story-sharing and shared values. She works with organizers and members to build beloved community on our path to power, with curiosity and compassion for each other, strategy to build the conditions we need to win, discipline in our mission, and revolutionary joy in the work we do.
