Anna Lambertson's Blog

You can read entries from Anna's complete historical blog archives here.

Anna Lambertson was born in Arizona, but raised in Ohio and North Carolina, and spent childhood summers visiting her grandparents on their farm in Kansas before opting to attend college in the Sunflower State. Having grown up feeling more at home in the heartland than on the east coast, coming to Kansas made sense.

Anna spent her first few years in the Midwest focused on the global scene (majoring in French, studying Spanish, living overseas, and volunteering with groups boasting international themes). While living in France, however, Anna learned to appreciate all that is local – culture, activism, and politics - and thus shifted her professional focus.

Although once insisting on pursuing jobs overseas after graduation, Anna instead decided to explore how she could take her love of language, culture, human rights, and politics and transfer her skills into a career path that could make an impact closer to home. She began working with local and statewide non-profits in Kansas, where she could promote access to education, health, and other basic needs that are so often inaccessible to the very poor, and increasingly, to the middle class. She also met some incredible young “up-and-comings” in Lawrence and Topeka, who inspired her to volunteer with political campaigns.

Anna has since served on the Steering Committee of the Kansas Association of Community Action Program’s Conference on Poverty, as a volunteer with the Compassion Foundation of Kansas City, and as a commissioner on the Topeka Human Relations Commission, among other pursuits. She has recently relocated to Colorado, where she writes grants and communications materials for non-profits. Anna remains a core group member of the national Dignity in Schools Campaign.

She enjoys the mountains of Colorado, but continues to monitor policy and political happenings in Kansas and across the country.

A newcomer to blogging, but a journalistic old soul, Anna writes about education and health policy, human rights, racial justice, and anything else that sparks her fancy. She tries to provide thoughtful and timely commentary, and strives to avoid preaching to the choir.

We're delighted and very honored to have Anna as a member of our writer's community.
