Linda Breitstein brings her expertise in community outreach to engage a wide range of stakeholders—from parents in beleaguered school districts, to taxpayers in financially strapped municipalities.
Her success at building connections with disenfranchised or disaffected groups by bringing them to the table when they might just as easily have walked away has been a key part of PPCE’s success at turning civic dialogue into innovative action plans.
She also serves as Eastern region coordinator for the Draw the Lines PA project. Prior to joining PPCE in 2008, she worked as public relations director for WSBK-TV in Boston and media consultant to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. She also has worked as an editorial assistant for CBS’s “60 Minutes” in Paris and as a special-education teacher in Israel.
