Carrie Griffin Monica
Executive Director Carrie Griffin Monica initially joined Stand Louisiana in 2012 as the Marketing and Communications Director and has had a hand in almost every facet of the organization’s success since that time: managing state operations, providing daily direction to the Educator All Star Program, and leading the higher standards and aligned assessments project. Carrie has 15 years of experience in fundraising, issue and political campaign management, communications and public relations, and mobilizing paid and volunteer teams. With experiences ranging from running a $3 million annual campaign for United Way of Eastern Maine, leading statewide policy and media advocacy efforts, and playing a key strategy role in all 24 of Stand Louisiana’s electoral victories - Carrie excels at creating and executing winning campaigns. As Executive Director since April 2015, Carrie and the rest of the Stand team continue to engage parents, educators, and community leaders around Louisiana to improve education for the 700,000 kids in our public schools.
