Grassroots Trainer

Shawn Hatmaker is a proud Tennessean who lives just outside the Smoky Mountains. He has overcome many barriers throughout his life, including childhood cancer. These experiences have led him to dedicate his life to fighting for people to be free from burdensome barriers, oppressive policies, and injustice.

Hatmaker has over a decade of experience in the political arena. From grassroots activism to campaign consulting, to working for the Tennessee Speaker of the House, he brings a wide range of experience to the team.

After staffing the Tennessee House of Representatives for three years, Hatmaker joined Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee as a field director.

From there, he started a campaign consulting firm that focused on assisting policy champions in their elections. After just one election cycle, Hatmaker significantly shaped the future of Tennessee’s State House by helping elect seven policy champions and defeating multiple incumbents. These victories made it possible for Tennessee to join the school choice movement.
