Wednesday, February 8, 2017

 The Democracy Initiative is pleased to announce that Michelle Whittaker will join the DI team as Director of Communications/Digital Media. We are fortunate to have been able to hire Michelle who is an experienced communications professional who has dedicated her career to building public awareness around issues affecting social justice and democracy.

    Most recently Michelle was Director of Communications at Fair Vote, The Center for Voting and Democracy, where she worked on projects such as the grassroots campaign in Maine to gain statewide election reform. Prior to her work at Fair Vote, Michelle was lead campaign strategist with the United Methodist General Board of Church and Society. 

     Michelle is a highly skilled graphic designer as well as an expert in both digital and traditional media strategies.  

     “We are thrilled to have Michelle join the team at DI.  She brings a wealth of knowledge on the issues we fight for “said Executive Director Wendy Fields. “She will work closely with the DI’s member organizations to develop and implement communications strategies to mobilize people in campaigns to strengthen and protect our democracy.”
