Founding Board Chair

In December 2020, EPU lost a very important team member, Norma Jane Sabiston. Norma Jane served as E Pluribus Unum’s board chair since the organization’s inception and was involved in the creation of EPU from day one. She was a dear friend, a trusted confidant, and an indispensable counselor. Advancing racial equity in the South was very important to NJ. It was not about politics; it was about helping people and making our beloved South a better place for all. She loved this community, and we loved her back. We were honored to have had Norma Jane on our Board.

Norma Jane Sabiston, President of Sabiston Consultants, spent 28 years of her career on Capitol Hill. She served as a Legislative Assistant to Congressman Billy Tauzin, State and Political Director for Senator John Breaux, and Chief of Staff for Senator Mary Landrieu. Norma Jane spent most of her career at the center of policy management in Washington, DC. After returning to New Orleans and establishing her public affairs firm, Norma Jane and her team, along with strategic partners, provided advice to clients in both the public and private sector. In addition, the Sabiston team worked with clients on business development and served as a connector for companies small, medium, and large to expand their markets. Norma Jane believed that her team was uniquely qualified to assist in navigating local, state, and federal institutions. The Sabiston team had a broad reach in Louisiana and across the country to assist individuals and companies in solving problems and making business development connections.
