Anna Galland is the former Executive Director of MoveOn Civic Action, the grassroots progressive organization whose millions of members organize together to make this country a place where everyone can thrive. She left the role in 2019.
Anna led issue advocacy and electoral campaigns at MoveOn starting in 2007, including working to end the Iraq War, supporting Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns, helping to pass the Affordable Care Act, defending Pres. Obama’s diplomatic agreement with Iran, boosting Bernie Sanders’ remarkable presidential run, and working to defeat Donald Trump. Under the Trump Administration, MoveOn emerged as a pillar of the vibrant Resistance movement.
Working closely with MoveOn Political Action’s then-Executive Director, Ilya Sheyman, she oversaw MoveOn’s growth and development—tripling MoveOn’s budget, growing its grassroots membership and reach, and launching innovative new programs to harness technology and people-power, including an open petition platform that’s supported tens of thousands of grassroots-led campaigns and a VideoLab that drove more than 300 million views to original progressive content.
She has three young children.
