“Tory Roberg is a social worker who changed paths into public policy advocacy when she realized that real change occurs at the policy level. She is a well-respected, professional lobbyist at the state Capitol, known for her work to promote minority groups and otherwise unpopular issues among the legislative majority.
Her work has repeatedly put her on the front lines of important social battles. She was one of just four voices at the state senate arguing passionately against the abhorrent SB1062 when it was introduced, after which she helped energize the equality community to defeat the law. She’s organized rallies, crafted strategies for advocacy groups, unified disparate voices, and aggressively lobbied to enact positive change.
Tory has worked at the organizational, state legislative, and federal government level, helping unify various and sometimes disparate groups around great causes. She has repeatedly fought injustice and kept spotlights on those that governments overlook, and she will proudly continue doing so for nonprofits and advocacy groups that also want to make the world a better place. Tory is known for her endurance, her spunk, her intelligence, and her willingness to continue fighting for what’s right and just. She truly shows courage in the face of adversity.
Tory is the Director of Government Affairs for the Secular Coalition for Arizona and will be joining us in November to give us an update on the 2018 legislative session. She’ll give us the inside stories of the battles around secular government at the Arizona state capitol.”
