PFP is proud to announce that Sandra Telep (she/her/ella) has been hired as the new Assistant Director of Philadelphia Family Pride.
Sandra, parent to two kids (13 and 11), moved to Philadelphia 13 years ago when her oldest was a newborn. In search of community in a new city, she connected with PFP and made friendships she enjoys to this day. Eventually she joined the PFP board of directors in 2013 and served as Vice Chair in 2016 and 2017.
More recently, Sandra recorded a popular "Recipes for Resilience" video for our 2021 virtual conference, was a featured speaker in one of our Paths to Parenthood classes this past summer, and helped to plan PFP’s 14th annual Family Matters Conference this fall.
In addition to her experience with PFP, Sandra has worked at various organizations including The Human Rights Campaign, The American Civil Liberties Union, and the AFL-CIO.
Sandra recently spent a year in Mexico with her children to cement their connection with their family, culture and language there. They had a wonderful experience, but are also very happy to be back home in Philly.
We look forward to folks meeting Sandra at upcoming PFP events! She can be reached directly at Sandra@phillyfamilypride.org.
