April 2, 2018 (BOSTON, MA) – Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) announced today that it has named labor and civil rights attorney, Alyssa Rayman-Read, as the Vice President and Director of CLF Massachusetts.
“Alyssa Rayman-Read is a tenacious legal advocate who brings a depth of experience in reducing inequalities and enhancing the rights of vulnerable communities,” said Bradley Campbell, President of Conservation Law Foundation. “Her courage in building bridges amongst unlikely allies; her conviction in amplifying the voices of those who have been side-lined; and her commitment to social and climate justice make her uniquely qualified to advance CLF’s mission in Massachusetts.”
Prior to joining CLF, Rayman-Read was Assistant General Counsel and Director of Labor Engagement at Northeastern University. As Assistant General Counsel, Rayman-Read advised the university’s senior executive team on labor relations, strategic communications, and organizational development. She also investigated and prosecuted unfair labor practice complaints across New England at the National Labor Relations Board and worked as a journalist for publications such as The American Prospect, where she translated complex policies and legal concepts into compelling stories that informed and influenced the general public.
“I became an attorney because I recognized that the law was a powerful tool for social change,” said Alyssa Rayman-Read. “CLF has been at the forefront of using the law to address some of the most significant environmental challenges of our time. I am honored to join this tireless and talented group of activists who are pushing forward in building strong, equitable, and healthy communities across the Commonwealth.”
