Title: Spokesperson and Advocate for Diplomatic Families and Victims of International Terrorism
Bartley’s career is marked by advocacy on behalf of two causes: HBCUs and achieving justice for the victims of the 1998 al-Qaida bombings of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya. Bartley’s father, a vice consul, and her brother, then interning at the embassy, were both killed in the attack. Bartley has spent years lobbying on Capitol Hill on behalf of the victims, while also working for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). She stepped down as vice president of government affairs at TMCF at the end of 2016 to focus on writing a book related to her advocacy on behalf of the victims of terrorism.
