Following a churchwide search, Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry has named Lacy Broemel as Refugee and Immigration Policy Analyst, a member of the Presiding Bishop’s staff. 

As Refugee and Immigration Policy Analyst, Broemel will be based in the Washington DC office of The Episcopal Church, working with the Office of Government Relations and in cooperation with Episcopal Migration Ministries, on the immigration and refugee public-policy positions adopted by the Episcopal Church’s General Convention and Executive Council, and the ministry of the Presiding Bishop.  The analyst represents Church policies to government leaders, devises and executes legislative and communication strategy, proposes and monitors federal legislation, writes public-policy statements and letters, determines and writes public-policy alerts for the Episcopal Public Policy Network, trains Episcopalians in public-policy advocacy, and builds coalitions to support policy priorities.

Since October 2014, Broemel has been the Manager for Communications and Operations for the Office of Government Relations. Broemel began working in the Office of Government Relations in August 2013 as the Staff Assistant/Office Manager.

She graduated from Sewanee University of the South in May 2013 with a B.A. in History and a Minor in Women and Gender Studies.

“I am delighted at the opportunity to continue my work for The Episcopal Church in this new capacity as Refugee and Immigration Policy Analyst,” Broemel said. “The Episcopal Church, through Episcopal Migration Ministries, works tirelessly to support and protect refugees around the world and in our communities. I am eager to engage Episcopalians and our elected officials in this important and faithful work of advocating for just and humane migration policies.”

She began her position June 1.
