"I became enormously impressed with ReThink Media initially through my work as a consultant to the organization several years back. It was immediately clear to me that the mission and model the co-founders developed for strengthening movements through strategic, collaborative communications could be game-changing across many different issue areas. The staff at ReThink are top-notch and deeply dedicated to their work, and so it is a privilege and with real pleasure that I continue to support the organization through service on the board of directors."
