We are thrilled to announce the hiring of our new Communications Director Jamila Bey!
Jamila spent ten years as a producer and editor at NPR, where she worked on shows like Talk of the Nation, Morning Edition, and All Things Considered. She recently hosted the hour-long radio show The Sex, Politics, And Religion Hour.
Jamila brings to the SSA a wealth of experience as a speaker and writer, and we are excited about her inside knowledge working as a member of the press. She was a debater all through high school and much of college, and has been a member of our Speakers Bureau for two years. She is passionate about STEM education, particularly advancing women and minority participation in STEM fields.
Jamila studied at Duquesne University, which as a private school has refused to allow an SSA affiliate group to form on campus. In her free time she is a debate and chess instructor, as well as a trivia ninja—to Jamila, Jeopardy! is a full-contact sport.
Please join us in welcoming Jamila Bey as the Communications Director for the Secular Student Alliance!
