Our mission is to repeal the Oregon Death Penalty Fr: Ron Steiner, OADP Re: Professional Reference for Internship of Tiffany Cerf Tiffany Cerf engaged as an intern, with Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (OADP) since early October of this year, throughout which we had several discussions, by phone, email, and in person, about our work and the opportunities to work together. I was very impressed, when it became obvious that she had done independent research on her own about death penalty abolition work, and OADP. Originally the idea was to have Tiffany work on the proposed “Crime Victims and Law Enforcement Building Bridges event. That effort was postponed due to a need for a better organized event, mutually decided by Prof. Gibbons, Prof. Plec and myself. When that decision was made it was necessary to re-direct Tiffany’s efforts elsewhere. Part of Tiffany’s internship work involved OADP’s plan in moving forward to our “educational campaign”, which involved informing voters about the issues surrounding the death penalty. Much of that effort was centered on planning, staging and hosting events. One genre of events is ecumenical faith community gatherings. OADP and Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon staged such an event in Portland on Oct. 16th great success; which we plan to replicate that effort in several Oregon towns/cities over the first half of 2014. Since the postponement of the Victim’s event, Tiffany has been working on the ecumenical event preparation efforts. In my observations I would state that Tiffany is well-intentioned, well-skilled and well-focused in her work on behalf of OADP and the multiple details involved in the projects we have given her. She has shown great initiative in searching out potential supporting organizations, which went beyond the list of potential participants we originally provided to her. This work requires here to do research on line, make telephone contact to verify contact persons, contact information, and record that information for future contact. I am doing similar work on different identified towns/cities; therefore I understand the time and effort it takes to accomplish the tasks. Tiffany has done an excellent job of keeping up with my own individual progress and has proven to be successful in this line of work, and at the tasks involved. I would evaluate her work as “exceeding expectations”. Tiffany has also been pro- active with our Social Media, and Communications Committee, working with its chair and board member Terrie Rodello. She has demonstrated valuable talent, as well as interest in the social media aspects that OADP is trying to develop. She has also been working with Donna Selbeck and the Correspondence Committee. She has been of great value to both of these endeavors. I have been very pleased with Tiffany’s efforts, tasks, and dedication and over all work she performed as an intern for OADP. Tiffany’s dedication, knowledge, experience, and passion to encourage, assist and educate people of all backgrounds, and diversity, in order to better communities makes her a perfect candidate for work that involves the betterment of communities, organizations, and individuals. Please let me know if there are more specific things you wish to know. Ron Steiner, OADP board chair (503) 990-7060 rsteine[email protected] P.O. Box2765 Salem, OR 97308 www.oadp.org
