Chicago–John Bouman, President of the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, has announced that Ambar Mentor-Truppa will join the organization as Vice President of Communications. In this new position, Mentor-Truppa will develop strategic communications to advance the Shriver Center’s advocacy work and oversee the organization’s public relations, brand management, and marketing activities. With generous support from Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation, Mentor-Truppa will also serve as a resource for a national network of law and policy advocates organized by the Shriver Center.

“Ambar brings seasoned skills and judgment to the Shriver Center,” said Bouman. “Under her leadership, I anticipate that our new communications department will sharpen the Shriver Center’s messaging and improve our ability to advocate for social justice.”

Mentor-Truppa has 12 years’ experience in strategic communications and public affairs. Working as a consultant in boutique agencies serving a civic and social sector clientele, she has directed communications and outreach projects to support policy work—from education reform, to healthcare access, to transportation technology—on behalf of several public interest organizations, including foundations and government entities. As a board member and Advocacy Council chair of Women Employed, she has led efforts to mobilize and engage support for policies important to working women, including equal pay and paid sick time. 

“The Shriver Center is a national leader in advocacy for progressive social policies that improve the lives of poor Americans,” said Mentor-Truppa. “I look forward to broadening the Shriver Center’s reach and creating conversation, innovation, and action that advances justice and opportunity.”

Mentor-Truppa will be based at the Shriver Center’s headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.
