Anna Galland | Executive Director,

Anna Galland is Executive Director of Civic Action, the grassroots progressive organization whose millions of members organize together to make this country a place where everyone can thrive.

A native of Evanston, Illinois, she has led issue advocacy and electoral campaigns at MoveOn since 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.
