As the Democracy Digital Organizer, Meghan Hess works to mobilize our online community and coordinate the organization’s communications through email and social media, focusing on campaigns to amplify the voices of ordinary citizens in our democracy and reduce the influence of big money in politics.

Before joining the team at U.S. PIRG, Ms. Hess was the program advocate for PIRGIM, the PIRG in Michigan, where she ran campaigns on a wide variety of public interest issues, including tax and budget policy, health care, and consumer safety. Ms. Hess has run grassroots outreach campaigns to update Michigan’s bottle deposit law and end wasteful agriculture subsidies, organized small business owners to support closing corporate tax loopholes, and was a frequent contributor to the Detroit Free Press and other major publications.

Ms. Hess graduated from Cornell University and is based in Washington, D.C.
