We’re so excited to announce that the re:power team has added two new incredible members to our team. Get to know Lee Anderson and Ali Brusch and keep an eye on our careers page for new openings!
Director, Movement Technology Programs
Lee Anderson is a digital and cultural strategist, a storyteller, and an artist. Lee made a name for himself over the last 16 years running electoral and political campaigns for national organizations like the AFL-CIO, CREDO SuperPAC, and the Center for Popular Democracy. Lee has also managed international digital advocacy strategy, and led communications functions in the philanthropic sector. Even with those achievements, Lee thinks of himself as an artist first.
A classically trained vocalist and music producer, Lee has been able to apply his love for the arts to his passion for social justice and activism and has helped plan and execute creative actions, performances, art installations, and touchpoints that use culture to mobilize communities into action. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Lee spent way too much time in Washington, DC, and now lives in Seattle, Washington with his wife and their mini Labradoodle, King T’Challa.
Managing Director, Finance & Operations
Ali is a New York native who has worked in finance and operations at local and global nonprofits since 2008. She has worked with staff to build comprehensive budgets and to strengthen and maintain the operational health of the organization. Her goal is always to create anti-oppressive practices and policies that center staff and that make finances accessible to all. Ali is so excited to be joining re:power in the role of Managing Director, Finance & Operations as we embark on our strategic plan and continue to uplift and support BIPOC leaders.
Ali currently lives in Fairfield, CT with her partner and two kids. When she’s not working, she enjoys a healthy dose of reality tv, along with cooking and being outdoors.
