Princess Bazley-Bethea

Princess Bazley-Bethea manages InterAction’s Together Project, an initiative designed to create a hub of advocacy and solidarity for U.S.-based NGOs that provide necessary development and humanitarian relief around the world, but confront discrimination or targeted regulations in the U.S. due to their operating principles or religious faith. Through the Together Project, InterAction actively represents its members that are most vulnerable to any direct attacks, or indirect impacts of laws, regulations, or policies that have a chilling effect on their ability to function. Princess’ leadership enables the project to bring attention to these issues, educate relevant policy-makers and officials, convene conversations where potential solutions can be found, connect our members to each other, and build solidarity broadly when needed in response to the shrinking civil society space experienced by project members.

Princess joins InterAction with some 14 years of experience in nonprofit programming and management work. Most recently working with the National United Methodist Church, Princess has a broad range of experience at the National Women’s Law Center, the program development office of Delta Sigma Theta, and as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Eastern Caribbean. She also brings direct experience successfully coordinating numerous programs ranging from youth and mentorship to women’s empowerment to refugee advocacy and support in South Africa. Princess has a Masters in Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs from American University and a BA in Sociology from Winthrop University. 

InterAction’s ‘Together Project’ to Protect Vulnerable NGOs

In January 2017, in partnership with a group of founding members (list below) and supported by leaders across our community, InterAction launched the Together Project Initiative. This endeavor represents a hub of advocacy and solidarity for U.S. based NGOs that provide vital development and humanitarian relief around the world and confront discrimination or targeted prejudicial regulations in the U.S. due to their operating principles or religious faith.
