Prosperity Indiana Adds Coalition Coordinator to Team to Expand Advocacy EffortsINDIANAPOLIS – Prosperity Indiana is pleased to announce that Hale Crumley has joined the PI team as the new Coalition Coordinator. In this role, Crumley will coordinate the operations and development for PI’s four issue-based coalitions and work to further the coalitions’ goals, which include increasing the advocacy capacity of members to address long-standing racial equity gaps and economic injustices and advancing policies that promote stable, affordable housing, consumer protections, asset-building, and economic opportunities for all Hoosiers to thrive. She will build diverse and inclusive partnerships with communities and individuals across the state to advance the strategic missions of the Indiana Assets & Opportunities Network, Hoosiers for Responsible Lending, the Hoosier Housing Needs Coalition, and the Opportunity Starts at Home-Indiana Coalition.
Prior to joining Prosperity Indiana, Crumley had experience in program management, economic inclusion research, and consulting in the public and nonprofit sectors including with CDFI Friendly Bloomington, Downtown Bloomington Inc., and the City of South Bend. She earned her Bachelor of Public Affairs with a major of Nonprofit Management and Leadership and her Master of Public Affairs with a concentration in Community and Economic Development, both from the Indiana University O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs in Bloomington.
Crumley said, “My professional background and passion lies in people-oriented community building and the importance of racial and economic equity. I am greatly looking forward to serving Prosperity Indiana members as a resource connector, convener of people, active listener, transparent communicator, best practices educator, and advocate for all Hoosiers.”
Prosperity Indiana is excited to welcome Crumley as a “Piece of the PI.”
