New York–This week, Bend the Arc: Jewish Action announced that Ginna Green will be the organization’s new Chief Strategy Officer.
For more than a decade, Ginna has crafted winning messages and campaigns in pursuit of social change. Most recently, she was the Managing Director for the Democracy Collaborative at ReThink Media, splitting her time between South Carolina and Washington, DC.
At Bend the Arc, Ginna will lead the strategy of the organization’s campaigns to mobilize tens of thousands of Jewish Americans to win progressive change and defend our democracy. Her leadership will seek to make the movement more inclusive — including Jews of color, religiously observant Jews, and Jews who do not yet see themselves as activists — and bring the full breadth of the Jewish community to the table to make change on matters like immigration, racial justice, economic equity, and civil rights.
With Ginna on board, Bend the Arc continues to be an outlier among national Jewish institutions, which are almost exclusively led by men. Bend the Arc’s Executive Team, as well as the chair of the board of directors of Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, are all women.
Stosh Cotler, Bend the Arc: Jewish Action’s CEO, said:
“On behalf of the staff, board, and leaders of Bend the Arc, I’m excited to welcome Ginna to our team. The threats our country is facing require bold, moral leadership. Ginna’s expertise, passion, and wisdom will be crucial as we continue to unite progressive Jewish voices across America to meet this moment.”
Ginna Green, Bend the Arc: Jewish Action’s new Chief Strategy Officer, said:
“Bend the Arc is leading the Jewish community in resisting Trump’s authoritarian agenda, holding Congress accountable, and pursuing justice and equality for all. As a Jewish woman of color, I know how high the stakes are for the future of our democracy and our community’s place within society. I couldn’t be more honored to be part of this organization’s vital work in this moment.”
Before joining ReThink, Ginna also worked with the Center for Responsible Lending, Full Court Press Communications in Oakland, California, The OpEd Project, the SPIN Academy, AlterNet, and the Breakthrough Institute. Ginna is a frequent speaker and writer on social change and democracy issues, and her work has been published in the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle.
