Debra DeLee's 21 Years at APN
Throughout her professional life, Debra DeLee has been working to secure a better future for others. She started her career as a fourth-grade teacher in the 1970s, dedicated to her students and the imperative of quality public education. Working her way through the ranks of the National Education Association (NEA), DeLee became the NEA's Political Director and chief lobbyist in Washington. As NEA Director of Government Relations and Director of its political action committee she worked to ensure fair working conditions for teachers and quality public education for students. Prior to joining Americans for Peace Now in April 1997, DeLee was selected by President Clinton to serve as Chief Executive Officer of the 1996 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, which she designed, developed, and managed for the president. Preceding the convention, DeLee served as Executive Director and Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and in 1994 was appointed DNC Chair. As the President and CEO of Americans for Peace Now for over 21 years, DeLee has worked tirelessly to promote American support for peace in the Middle East and support for the Israeli peace movement — Shalom Achshav — working to secure a better future for Israel and her neighbors.
