Drew has been an organizer and activist for more than 20 years – mostly with climate justice and environmental groups. In 2008, he left a good job in Vermont to work with MoveOn during the Democratic Primary. He went on to work for Democratic candidates and aligned initiative campaigns from California to North Carolina. In 2010, he started PowerThru Consulting to help progressive candidates and campaigns use digital tools to build bigger, better field campaigns and win. These days he works with our clients to protect endangered species, fight fracking, Divest from fossil fuels and more. In his spare time he’s founding his fifth new non-profit and serves on the board at VPIRG. In addition to politics, he likes cooking, cats (the internet and the real kind), hiking, whisky and dancing. Bonus points if you mix 2 or more.
