Brown grad joins Pelosi staff
The newest addition to the staff of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi comes from Rhode Island.
Erica G. Sagrans, 24, joins Pelosi’s three-person online media team in Washington. She will write content for Pelosi’s Web site, www.speaker.gov, and for e-mails that go out from the office. Also, Sagrans said, the team will be working on initiatives “to make Congress more open and accessible to people, using the Internet.”
Sagrans hails from Cambridge, Mass., but lived in Rhode Island from 2000 until last week. She graduated from Brown University in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology, and gained Web writing experience as a contributor to the political blog Rhode Island's Future.
She spent a year working for the Rhode Island Family Life Center, a Providence-based nonprofit that assists people being released from prison. In that job, Sagrans did research, policy work and grant writing. She also worked with the Right to Vote Campaign, which advocated for passage of the ballot question last fall that restored voting rights to an estimated 15,000 felons who’ve finished their prison sentences, but are still on parole or probation.
Sagrans also worked on the campaigns of David Segal, the former Providence city councilman elected state representative in November at the age of 26, and of Craig O’Connor, who announced his candidacy for a state Senate district on the city’s west side, but did not run.
