Director of TYT Army. General Hartson at your service.
Alison Hartson 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 makes 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.
Wash+rinse+repeat… 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 put people over profit and policy over politics.
While Alison continues to advise progressive organizations, her main focus is now to apply her skills of organizing and legislative strategy, teaching and training, as well as her direct experience dealing with media bias and propaganda to build the TYT Army into a force to be reckoned with so that our families, neighbors, and friends are prioritized over the interest of profit-seeking corporations and power-hungry individuals.
We have built an impressive team of leadership here at the TYT Army. Those bios are on their way!
