Andrea Prebys-Williams, MPA, MBA


Andrea fell in love with organizing as a student activist. Upon finishing college, she jumped headfirst into the worker rights movement, organizing in communities throughout the country. As a lead organizer for a union, Andrea led numerous successful campaigns to unionize employees. Andrea also worked with a leading public sector union, where she was responsible for capacity-building among the membership, including developing and implementing a leadership training program. She recently served as a board member for Next Generation, focused on grassroots organizing using innovative methods to mobilize younger union members. 
Andrea is a proud graduate of the Challenging White Supremacy Program aimed at white activists committed to anti-racist movement-building. In 2019, she graduated from PGS with an MPA and MBA, also serving as a Spiekhout Fellow for Civic Leadership & Social Justice. 
Andrea has worked with non-profits, labor, educational institutions, and philanthropy and has consulted on various projects at the community-building and policy level. She is fiercely committed to social justice. She believes systemic change requires centering those most impacted while simultaneously grappling with and addressing the ways that misogyny and supremacy play out in organizations, in ourselves, and in movement spaces.
