Jasmine Gripper's Picture

Jasmine Gripper

Jasmine Gripper is currently the Legislative Director at the Alliance for Quality Education.  After spending over 5 years working as a teacher, she quickly realized that education policies impacting the classroom are often decided by those who have little to no classroom experience. In order to effect genuine change and address the growing opportunity gap it was time for a career shift. Jasmine first moved to Cleveland, OH to work as a Field Organizer for Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. She then moved to Albany, NY to join the Alliance for Quality Education. In recognition of her growing influence in Albany, in 2016 she was named as one of City and State’s 40 under 40 rising stars. Jasmine is dedicated to educating parents, students, legislators and community members on their power to influence and advance policies that ensure that all of our children have access to a quality education.
