Betsy Hammer Carr

Union Community Resources and Operations Associate

She works on operations and executive assistance and leads our Union Community Resources program, directly supporting union members facing personal obstacles to success and coordinating the annual Holiday Party that serves thousands of South Bay children and families.

A lifetime San Jose resident, Betsy has worked as an ally of Working Partnerships USA for almost two decades and joined the staff in the summer of 2015. Betsy brings over fifteen years of nonprofit experience with her, having worked as a government grant writer, program director and operations manager at organizations including Community Technology Alliance in San Jose and Green For All in Oakland.

She is guided by her belief in the value of community organizing, in building electoral power and in access to quality education. Betsy's favorite sport is precinct walking.
