Buckhead resident named Common Cause GA executive director
Serkedakis takes over the leadership of the Georgia office and will implement policy, advocacy, communications and fundraising strategies to build support for the Common Cause agenda at the state and national levels.
She joins a team of dedicated leaders across the country working to hold power accountable, no matter who holds it, and create a democracy that works for every Georgian and every American.
“After years of working in public policy, politics, and non-profit advocacy, I’ve seen the challenges facing our democracy from the inside. And like many others who’ve participated in the system, I want to work to change it – it isn’t serving everyday Georgians as it should,” Serkedakis said.
Before joining Common Cause, Serkedakis directed national events for CARE USA, an international non-governmental organization fighting global poverty. Previously, she was an associate campaign director at Coxe Curry & Associates, Atlanta’s oldest and largest nonprofit fundraising consulting firm, and served as director of development and communications at Georgia Appleseed, a public interest law center working to increase justice in Georgia through law and policy reform.
Serkedakis has extensive political experience, having worked for Govs. Sonny Perdue and Roy Barnes, as well as in Washington for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana, and the Democratic Governors Association.
