Tamara Conry

Union Rep, Camp Fire Survivor

Tamara Conry moved to Paradise, California, in 1990 to raise a family and begin a sixteen-year teaching career at Paradise Intermediate School, after which she began work as a union representative for the California Teachers Association. 

When the 2018 Camp Fire struck her town, it devastated the beautiful nature Tamara loved. Tamara continues to work on behalf of teachers, many of whom live in areas subjected to wildfires and need relief from California’s wildfires.
