Angelique Salizan


Angelique Salizan is dedicated to child welfare advocacy, policy, and reform. Her efforts date back to 2013 when she participated in a New York State campaign to expand support services for foster youth pursuing higher education. This experience sparked her interest in a public policy career and led to her working for the United States Senate as a Congressional staff member.

During her tenure on Capitol Hill as a Legislative Correspondent for Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Angelique managed constituent engagement and policy priorities on a host of issues, most notably child welfare and social services. She led the introduction of child welfare legislation such as the Family First Transition and Support Act and the Fostering Stable Housing Opportunities Act, both of which passed into law. She also held positions in the offices of Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Ron Wyden (D-OR).

Previously, Angelique served as the Policy Director for the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, where she led government relations, education, and advocacy strategies in domestic and international child welfare, permanency, and adoption policy. She is a skilled facilitator with experience in public advocacy campaigns and leading coalition and capacity-building initiatives in collaboration with the communities being served.

Angelique earned an Associate degree in Humanities from Sullivan County Community College, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Binghamton University, and a Master’s in Policy Management from Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy.
