Celina Coming believes that defending civil liberties is humanistic, not partisan; inclusive, not selective; and consistent, not convenient. She believes that the ACLU is the most dedicated non-profit organization when it comes to protecting the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The ACLU’s mission can be understood through one of Celina’s favorite political theorists, Thomas Paine: “He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression, for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”
In her capacity of Communications Manager, Celina manages the social media platforms for the ACLU of Ohio, coordinates the communications calendar, and serves as a liaison to local, state, and national media outlets. Additionally, Celina crafts messaging on behalf of the affiliate for press releases, emails, blogs, petitions, and more.
In 2015, Celina graduated magna cum laude from John Carroll University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and an emphasis on political philosophy. Outside of her work at the ACLU, Celina loves to travel and is an avid trivia enthusiast. Celina has an undying love for Northeast Ohio and is devoted to making Cleveland great again.
