Staff & Board
In July 2021, Fran Eskin-Royer assumed the helm of the National Advocacy Center of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. With the new title of Executive Director, she oversees planned growth of the office and continues the important mission of educating and advocating primarily on "poverty, immigration, and human trafficking; three issues that impact those on the margins of society – those we serve," says Fran.
"At NAC, we see these issues as inseparable from racism, domestic violence and environmental degradation; the interconnections are undeniable. The signs of the time cry out loudly for action around racial justice and climate change, and our charism’s call to be reconcilers, both with persons and the earth, gives us a clear entry point for this advocacy.
“With our ties to an international congregation, we also are concerned with how U.S. policy impacts other countries, particularly those where Good Shepherd has sisters and programs," says Fran.
Fran served as associate director from March 2019 until July 2021. Prior to that, she was NAC's staff associate, beginning in April 2014, providing administrative support to the director and sharing responsibility for the daily operations of the office and budgeting.
