We are thrilled to announce that Oliver Bernstein will be joining the Center for Public Policy Priorities in mid-April as Communications Director. A fluent Spanish speaker who has lived and worked along the Texas-Mexico border and nationally, Oliver brings more than nine years of  communications experience to CPPP. He most recently directed a grassroots communications strategy for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign, which aims to replace coal with clean energy.

Among other creative strategies, Oliver’s team at the Sierra Club commissioned a 20-foot-tall inflatable inhaler prop to draw attention to public meetings about air pollution, and set up hair-testing events at salons across the country to educate the public about mercury pollution from coal plants. Oliver also directed the Sierra Club’s national diversity media program from 2006 to 2009, serving as a bilingual on-the-record spokesman and developing Hispanic media outreach plans.

As a former board member and board president of American Gateways, which works to ensure that immigrants and refugees have equal access to justice in Texas, Oliver led a successful re-branding effort and spearheaded plans for their first annual benefit gala.

Please join us in welcoming Oliver Bernstein to CPPP’s senior leadership team. More congratulations are in order as well — Oliver and his wife welcomed the birth of their second child earlier this month.
