Ellen Dahlke
Development and Communications Associate

Born and raised in the Midwest, Ellen grew up with four brothers, one of whom lives with profound disabilities. Her passion for social justice was germinated by her love of her brother.

Ellen studied English and Education, earning her MA from the University of Illinois. She taught high school for several years, forming social justice, feminist, and fashion clubs with her students. Ellen is also involved in prison education. Having taught in a college level program in an Illinois prison, Ellen is currently developing a GED/teacher prep program at San Quentin Prison. Ellen has always had a love for the arts (can draw a mean freehand Scottie dog if pushed), and is delighted to be working with professional artists every day.
