Before joining the National Health Law Program, Leaming served for eight years as the Vice President of Communications for the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS), where he developed the organization’s communications’ strategies, ACSblog, its social media platforms, and directed external and internal communications projects.
From 2003-2008 Leaming was the Communications Associate for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, where he wrote articles for the organization’s monthly magazine, Church & State, and posts for its blog, Wall of Separation, and served as a spokesperson. Leaming moved to D.C. in June 2000 to work as a communications specialist for People For the American Way, where he helped coordinate media outreach, the group’s quarterly newsletter and was as an editor for the eighth edition of Hostile Climate, a book documenting discrimination against the LGBTQ populations.
Before arriving in D.C., Leaming worked for more than 5 years at the Freedom Forum First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University. The First Amendment Center was then led by the late John Seigenthaler. Leaming wrote daily about the First Amendment’s religious liberty clauses for the organization’s online forums. His communications’ background also includes two-years of research for the late David Halberstam’s The Children, about the Civil Rights Movement and the young students who helped lead facets of it.
