Kelly Griffith is an activist and advocate who has devoted her 25-year career to social justice. Dedicated to improving the lives of her fellow Arizonans, she has touched some of the oldest and youngest members of our community, and nearly everyone in-between. For 12 years, Kelly facilitated the Arizona Grandparent Ambassadors, a statewide support and legislative advocacy network for grandparents raising grandchildren. More recently, she brought her leadership to the Strong Start Tucson initiative, advocating for high-quality early childhood education for all families, regardless of income. In her current role as CEO for the Center for Economic Integrity (CEI), whose mission is to build economically strong communities for all, she took on banning payday lenders from Arizona and won, even when she was outspent 10 to 1. Kelly has given voice to so many critical concerns impacting workers, consumers, children, and families. Supervisor Elías also cared deeply about these issues and was a close ally and supporter of Kelly.
