Wendy Fields

Executive Director











Wendy Fields is the Executive Director of the Democracy Initiative (DI). She brings over 25 years of experience as a trainer, organizer, and strategists to the DI with a special focus on economic and racial equality. Prior, she was the Vice President of Strategic Campaigns and Partnerships at Common Cause. She also spent 17 years at United Automobile Workers (UAW) as both Executive Administrative Assistant and Chief of Staff to President Bob King. Her work within the labor and good government movements has always focused on building collective power among everyday workers and citizens. Today, as many voters face existential threats to voting rights, workers’ and environmental protections, and the corrupting influence of corporate money in politics, Wendy is mobilizing millions of DI Partner groups to advance pro-democracy reforms at all levels of government.
