Another good sign that the new administration will have education experts at the forefront

Tina Flournoy

Former AFT public-policy guru Tina Flournoy has been named as chief of staff for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Harris has been trailblazing since the start of the white house transition as CNN reports that 52% of the staff is women and 46% identify as people of color, including Flournoy. 

Flournoy previously served as assistant to the president for public policy for AFT. Additionally, Flournoy is one of the many women of color chosen to be on the senior staff and she has extensive government and White House administration experience. She previously served as the Chief of Staff during the Clinton Administration and she has served in many roles within the Democratic Party. She is also a Georgetown Law Alumni. AFT is proud to have Flournoy representing and continuing the AFT legacy in the Biden-Harris Administration.
