Demos is proud to announce the addition of Liz Flowers to our team as Director of Communications.

Flowers joins Demos with nearly three decades of experience in strategic communications, nonprofit management, public policy, and issue advocacy. Flowers comes to Demos from e/flowers and associates, a media and government relations consulting firm she founded in 2000. Since opening the firm, she has worked with clients across a variety of industries, including WNBA Atlanta Dream, Metro Atlanta Transit Authority, Grady Health Foundation, Rape and Incest National Network, Georgia Council for the Hearing Impaired, Georgia Federation of Teachers, Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance, and the Democratic Caucuses in Georgia.

“Liz is uniquely qualified to help Demos achieve our mission and expand our reach,” said Heather McGhee, Demos president. “She not only brings a wealth of knowledge about the progressive movement, but a history and commitment to translating the work we do into a message we can use to engage our audience.”

Flowers previously served as Executive Director of the Georgia Senate Democratic Caucus, Vice President of Public Affairs and Marketing for Planned Parenthood in Los Angeles, Associate Director of the ACLU of Southern California, Executive Director of Georgians for Choice, Executive Director for the Georgia Network to End Sexual Assault, and Public Affairs Manager for the YWCA of Greater Atlanta.

Flowers is an award-winning writer and the former editor of four newspapers. In 2007, she wrote from Israel about their national security struggles while under fire from Hezbollah forces. In 1990, Flowers spent time in Uganda with a USAID program examining the post-Idi Amin years. She contributed to the paper and documentary, “The Feminization of Poverty.” Her short fiction can be found in the anthology, “O, Georgia. Georgia’s Newest and Most Promising Writers.”
