Speaker Profile

Evan Sutton

Digital Director
American Federation of Teachers

When the universe conspired against my plans to get an MFA in creative writing, I found myself relocating to Las Vegas, NV in 2007 to take an unpaid internship with Obama for America. I haven't looked back since. In 2010, the winds of fortune brought me to NOI, where my passion for writing and communication quickly led to responsibilities in digital and (eventually) traditional media. At the start of 2014, I joined the team at the AFT to fight for educators, nurses, public employees, and the people they serve. When not figuring out better ways to engage people through content and writing, I can be found playing with my kids, making ice cream, watching football (and futbol), and making sure my wife is happy.
