With over 18 years of experience in progressive organizing, elections, and advocacy campaigns, Annie is a campaign strategist, coach, advisor, writer, trainer and speaker who supports both movement organizations and candidates and their campaign teams in running values-driven, electorate-expanding, people-powered operations towards a more just, reflective democracy. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, the Nation, ABC, and MSNBC; to date, she has partnered with over 632 campaigns.
Whether that means electing transformative leaders up and down the ballot across the U.S. and Europe; driving cultural and narrative shifts around racial, environmental, and economic justice; or winning issue advocacy campaigns for real legislative and policy-based power for working people – Annie helps leaders and organizations invest in strong, conversation-based organizing at scale, get rooted in expansive voter targeting models, and build innovative, strategically aligned programs around clear, shared, powerful theories of change.
She’s built programs and delivered high-level strategy, training, field, fundraising, media power to some of the progressive movement’s most transformative leaders – both here in the U.S. (partial list includes: Stacey Abrams, Summer Lee, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Mayors Tishaura Jones and Chokwe Lumumba, Mandela Barnes, Garlin Gilchrist, Pramila Jayapal, Ayanna Pressley, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar) and abroad (most recently, fighting fascists with slates of downballot progressives across Italy, including the newly elected Italian Democratic Party Chair, Elly Schlein.)
Select organizations, clients, and projects include: Food & Water Watch, MoveOn, Democracy for America, Progressive Congress, the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ foundation, Movement School (Justice Democrats’ Training Academy), Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), the Andrew Goodman Foundation, VoteAmerica, Our Revolution, ParentsTogether, Mo’ Progressi, and Social Change.

Looking to build right now especially with those who know that elections are just one piece of the puzzle in creating the world we seek; who see electoral organizing as an essential way to build a more reflective democracy, grounded in racial and economic justice; who love and respect voters; and who are invested in challenging and uprooting white supremacy in ourselves, our institutions, and our electoral process wherever it shows up.
