Staufenbeil joins ROC USA to help ROC Association meet its goals

CONCORD, N.H. — ROC USA is pleased to announce that Kiley Staufenbeil has been hired as a national community organizer. Staufenbeil will work alongside Mary O’Hara, Executive Vice President for ROC Movement and Jayda Ragas, Executive Assistant, to scale ROC leaders’ capacity to advocate and build collective community power.

She will also work closely with the ROC Association Board to implement its 2024 priorities and vision – including Member engagement, communications and policy and advocacy work at the local, state and federal levels of government.

“ROC Association and our ROC Movement service unit are so excited to welcome Kiley to the team,” O’Hara said. “Her enthusiasm and energy are going to help jump start the Association’s 2024 priorities. Kiley comes to us with some great experience in community organizing across communities of all types – rural, urban, seniors and young people, families and singles, all incomes, backgrounds, ethnicities and across all mediums – in person, online and on the phone.”

Staufenbeil has a background in digital organizing, seeking out partnerships, training organizations on digital content and its uses and building out a community of digital professionals to resource share and connect with her and each other.

“It taught me that building real connection with folks you may not have the chance to meet in person is possible,” she said.

She graduated from San José State University in San José, Calif., with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a dual minor in anthropology and public policy.

“I am excited to help residents learn about their power and how to harness it for change in their communities and beyond,” Staufenbeil said. “I’m also eager to be a part of dispelling stigmas and misinformation about manufactured homes and manufactured home communities.”

Outside of work, Staufenbeil enjoys acting in community theater, participating in local mutual aid projects, shopping for vintage clothes, art and furniture and hanging out with her small and scruffy dog, Jack.
