Alison Hartson

Alison is working to bring our TYT Community closer together so that we can be better connected through these trying times. She leads the TYT Army and TYT Moderator team, among other efforts to support our growing audience.

Alison was a public high school teacher for 10 years in the working-class community of Garden Grove, CA. She taught English and designed and taught a successful intervention program for students who were at risk of not graduating high school.

Seeing up close how political corruption creates two systems in this country–one for the rich, and one for everyone else–she was inspired to begin volunteering for Wolf-PAC, an organization dedicated to removing the corrupting influence of money in our political system. As a volunteer and full-time teacher, Alison organized thousands of people in California to pass a measure through the state legislature that will begin the process of getting big money out of politics.

Alison went on to repeat this success in other states and soon stepped down from teaching in order to become the National Director of Wolf-PAC where she designed the infrastructure necessary to train and support volunteers throughout the country.

In 2018, Alison stepped down from Wolf-PAC in order to run for U.S. Senate in California as a Justice Democrat and has continued to spend her time helping other candidates and organizations in their fight to prioritize people over profit, policy over politics.

Alison now works full time with TYT as the Community Director, applying her experience of organizing and legislative strategy, teaching and training, as well as dealing with media bias and propaganda in order to help build positive, productive, constructive communities around the world. These teams are working together to be part of the solution for a more compassionate future – today.
