Outreach & Community Service Committee


The Outreach and Community Service Committee organizes and plans community service activities with an emphasis on helping women and girls. The committee also recruits members for our Congressional Council, and develops strategies to retain alumni members.

Annika Christensen serves as Legislative Assistant for Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence (MI-14), handling the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, civil rights, judiciary, healthcare, and small business issues. She previously worked as a Legislative Aide for Senator Gary Peters of Michigan and for Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, her home state. She graduated from the all-women's Barnard College and is passionate about advancing equal rights. In her free time, she sings with the Thomas Circle Singers and listens to lots of podcasts.

Tessica Glancey currently serves as Deputy Director of Communications for the House Homeland Security Committee’s Majority Staff. As a strategic communications professional, Tess excels in crisis communications, media relations, and utilizing digital communications to advance the Committee’s national security policy initiatives. Prior to joining the Committee, Tess worked in House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s office developing a comprehensive digital, social media, and branding strategy. During the 2012 cycle, she served on U.S. Senator Scott Brown’s communications team and shortly thereafter joined Senator Richard Shelby’s press office in Washington. Tess earned a B.A. in history from Bates College. She is a passionate advocate for literacy, building upon the legacy of her family’s nonprofit, The Reading Fund. The organization is devoted to promoting literacy in underprivileged elementary schools across the United States. Tess continues to fuse her love of reading and her experience as a competitive figure skater to hold skating charity events to raise money for charter schools locally in Anacostia. She recently started a bipartisan and bicameral Book Club to bring women together on Capitol Hill in a less formal setting to network and inspire one another.
