External Relations & Board Support
Francesca Bitton, a recent graduate from the University of San Francisco, has always had a keen interest in human rights and development. Recently joining ERA in August of 2017 as our Executive Assistant, Francesca is responsible for supporting ERA’s Executive Director, Noreen Farrell, and serving as the Board of Directors Liaison.
Throughout her career, Francesca has pushed herself to experience varying fast-paced political environments and to transcend both international and national borders. Prior to joining ERA, she has worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. for Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard, and worked for the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, she served as her University’s Title IX liaison, working to create a campus of inclusivity and break down the institutional barriers that allow for stigmas to around sexual assault to take place.
Francesca hopes to continue her passion for speaking out on issues that affect our society’s most marginalized groups, while also continuing to learn from the powerful women around her.
Francesca grew up in Marin County, CA, with her many pets and siblings, and enjoys travelling with her friends and family to new destinations—especially if they involve new restaurants.
