I'm a strategist and organizational leader working to advance democracy and build a world where everyone can thrive.
I currently serve as a consultant to visionary leaders and organizations in philanthropy, politics, and advocacy for social change. Recent projects include architecting a multi-year powerbuilding strategy for a national foundation; designing a coalition’s marquee advocacy campaign; providing leadership coaching and training to Executive Directors; and advising political donors on 2020 needs and opportunities.
Previously, I spent 7 years as Executive Director of MoveOn Civic Action, mobilizing millions of grassroots members in campaigns to extend & defend access to health care for millions of people; to protect democracy against accelerating assaults; to fight for the dignity and safety of immigrants; and much more,
I led a top-to-bottom overhaul of MoveOn in a time of tremendous growth, increased visibility, and impact. In close partnership with MoveOn PAC Executive Director Ilya Sheyman, I quadrupled MoveOn's budget and base of sustaining donors, tripled the size of the staff team, and dramatically grew our membership and reach. We also raised millions of dollars for other organizations and for humanitarian relief.
My work in national media has included numerous appearances on MSNBC, CNN, and CSPAN, and interviews with print publications including the New York Times, Washington Post, Glamour Magazine, Huffington Post, and a range of other outlets. My writing has appeared in outlets including The Nation.
I serve as chair of the board of MoveOn, and as a member of the boards of Public Citizen and the National Domestic Workers Alliance. I'm an advisor to a number of other activist efforts and civic start-ups. I live in the Chicago area.
