Mira Weinstein, Founder and Organizer-in-Chief
Mira has a thirty-year history leading political and organizing campaigns. Her first campaign was in 1988, when she might have been the only person in America who thought Michael Dukakis could win.
Since then, she has expanded her definition of victory. She’s directed successful organizing and mobilization campaigns with feminist activists, union members, teachers and gun violence prevention activists. She’s also directed regional field operations for two statewide ballot measures and many candidate campaigns.
In statewide campaigns with union members in California, Colorado and Florida, Mira’s leadership resulted in significant membership growth, budget and legislative victories, identification of hundreds of new leaders and many election day wins.
She designed and facilitated training programs for each campaign, ranging from a six-session campaign simulation to short 15 minute drills to help canvassers move undecided voters. She also has extensive experience revising training sessions to incorporate adult learning principles and interactive techniques.
Mira conceives of campaigns through the lenses of diversity, equity and inclusion, recognizing the wide variety of experiences that organizers and activists bring to the work. Her guiding principle is that we learn oppression and must actively work to unlearn and dismantle it.
