TEACH ADVOCACY NETWORK, a nonpartisan organization advocating for equitable funding in nonpublic schools, has named Daniel Mitzner as its new director of state political affairs. In this newly created role, Mitzner will manage policy, community engagement, and mobilization in New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania, California, and Maryland. He will oversee five regional offices where he and his team will initiate and monitor key legislation and advocacy to further the network’s mission.
Most recently, Mitzner, who will report to Teach Advocacy Network’s executive director Maury Litwack, served as director of the Brooklyn, Queens & Staten Island region for American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
“Daniel is a tremendous community organizer with an unparalleled passion for the work we do to bring our fair share of funding to non-public schools. He brings a specific skill set to our team that will enable more involvement from schools, parents and students,” said Litwack.
Teach Advocacy Network, founded in 2013, has secured $500 million in government aid for nonpublic schools since 2011. Currently, 450 day schools and yeshivas receive government funding through its efforts. Visit teachadvocacy.org.
