Angela Carlberg - Project Manager, Racial Equity and the Democratic Economy
Angela Carlberg served as the project manager for Racial Equity and the Democratic Economy at the Democracy Collaborative. With more than 10 years of experience cultivating relationships in state government, academia, and community development sectors, Angela specializes in facilitating conversations at the intersection of race, gender, policy, and organizational change.
At The Democracy Collaborative, Angela provided project management and primary leadership to help advance new work related to establishing community wealth building systems that are democratic and reparative. More specifically, she had been working with a group of grasstops and grassroots cross-sector leaders in Northern Virginia who are collaborating to establish a national model that is grounded in these principles. The clarity and expertise that she brings to issues of race and gender has made her one of TDC’s most sought-after thinkers and facilitators-—by her peers on staff and by our partners in the field.
She earned a bachelor’s degree from Elon University and a master’s degree from The Ohio State University. Her published work includes “Doubly Displaced: Women, Public Housing, and Spatial Access after Hurricane Katrina,“ in the book The Women of Katrina: How Gender, Race, and Class Matter in an American Disaster, and The Challenge to Act: How Progressive Women Activists Reframe American Democracy. In her free time, Angela coaches CrossFit and trains with DC Weightlifting Club where she is a nationally ranked Olympic-style weightlifter. Angela believes that fitness should be accessible and inclusive. As a coach, she strives to create spaces where people can move their bodies and realize their strength potential.
