Karen Camper

Tennessee House Minority Leader Karen Camper (D-Memphis) has been re-elected as president of the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (NOBEL Women).

The election was held last weekend at the organization’s annual convention in Chicago.

NOBEL Women is a non-profit, non-partisan organization primarily composed of current and former black women legislators as well as many appointed officials.  Established in 1985, the organization aims to increase and promote the presence of black women in government, as well as, the public and the private sector and serve as a global voice on issues affecting the lives of all women.

“I am humbled by the trust the members of NOBEL Women have shown in me and will continue to work diligently to advance their causes from the state houses to the boardrooms and beyond,” said Camper.

Representing much of the Whitehaven and Southeast Memphis areas, Camper has served in the Tennessee General Assembly for 11 years.  She was elected Minority Leader last year by the House Democratic Caucus.
