Apreill Hartsfield is Policy/Data Analyst for VOICES for Alabama’s Children. She rejoins the organization after previously serving as its director of policy and Alabama Kids Count (2001-2006) and communications director (2014-2015). She has more than two decades of experience in writing, editing, data and public policy research, message development, grassroots campaigns and media advocacy.

For as long as I can remember, I have felt a strong passion to advocate for and give a voice to those who, for whatever reason, are not in a position to do so for themselves. I am grateful for many opportunities to develop a unique skill set and improve my effectiveness as an advocate. 

Apreill oversees the Alabama Kids Count project, conducts research and data analysis, and assists in guiding VOICES’ policy and legislative efforts. She also provides support in the organization’s communications activities including drafting press releases and website copy.

Apreill worked as a Senior Communications Associate for the Southern Poverty Law Center, helping legal teams with research, media advocacy and other aspects of communications. She was a Writer, Editor and Content Coordinator on the marketing team for Beasley Allen Law Firm, conducting research and writing and managing the firm’s monthly publication, the Jere Beasley Report. Following law school, Apreill clerked for Lee County (Alabama) Family Court.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and public communication from the University of North Alabama and a Juris Doctor from Faulkner University Thomas Goode Jones School of Law. Apreill resides in Prattville, Ala., with her family and they are actively involved in various ministries through Journey Church of the River Region.
