Director of Policy and Advocacy

Amy Peake is the Director of Policy and Advocacy for the Rebuild SoCal Partnership.

Earlier in her career, Peake spent nearly eight years as congressional staff in Washington, D.C., in legislative and communications positions. Her time on the hill included working as a Labor Policy Advisor for the U.S. House Committee on Education and Labor. She focused on healthcare policy and labor policy that impacted working families. She also worked as a Legislative Assistant & Press Secretary for a member of California’s congressional delegation.

Peake also spent several years on the government affairs team at the Urban Institute. Her efforts helped connect Urban’s experts – and their policy research and evidence-based insights – to policymakers at the local, state, and federal levels.

Peake started her career working in a city manager’s office in a Northern California city after she studied Communications and Political Science at the University of California, Davis. She was born and raised in Southern California and the Central Valley; today, she calls the Ventura Coast home.
