5 Questions for Mariah

Strategic Partnerships Manager

Question 1: What’s your Action Network origin story?

I was looking for a job with progressive values and a huge impact, and I learned of Action Network through a progressive job board listserv. This community of progressives shares openings in their network to keep people employed and aware of changes in our movement. This attests to the community behind and the respect folks have for Action Network.

Question 2: What is your favorite thing about working at Action Network?

I love being of service to the movement with this incredible group of committed activists. Although we’re not on the ground per se, it feels like I’m working hand-in-hand with our partners.

Question 3: How would you describe what you do to your friends and family?

I work for a non-profit tech company that helps other non-profits and campaigns mobilize their activists through email, petitions, and more! Then of course, I name-drop a few partners like Black Voters Matter, the DNC, and the Women’s March Foundation.

Question 4: What sea creature does the original Action Network logo look most like?

It looks like a school of fish to me.

Question 5: What genre of movies do you enjoy watching?

I’m a rom-com fanatic. Give me a love story with a good score, a glass of wine, and some popcorn; then I’m set!

A little more about Mariah:

As the Strategic Partnerships Manager, my primary focus is to provide innovative solutions to our partners. From building an integration to joining them for a national campaign, I’m here to support them. For example, I was able to create our Scaling Impact grant program, which awarded $10,000 to selected partners working on electoral organizing in BIPOC communities.

Furthermore, I developed our partnership with Broccoli City Festival on their Power of One campaign in Washington, DC. A few of our partners including Women’s March Foundation, Death Penalty Action, Black Voters Mater, Center for Common Ground, and United We Dream joined us to incentivize the festival go-ers to do good in their communities. 

I’m from Chicago, IL but have been a DC transplant for 7 years. I enjoy traveling, competitive game nights, and supporting local restaurants. If you ever want to talk pizza, I’m your girl!
