Arisha Hatch is managing director of Campaigns at Color Of Change, leading campaigns on civic engagement, voting rights, criminal justice, and corporate and media accountability. She is a leader and innovator in the racial justice movement, organizing Black People’s Brunches—which brought together more than 12,500 people in 2018—and helping to set the organization’s agenda in 2019 and beyond. Since joining Color Of Change in 2012, she has ushered in some groundbreaking victories for black communities: getting payment processors like Mastercard and PayPal to ban the use of their platforms by white supremacists, helping to reimagine what a progressive prosecutor looks like, and persuading Saturday Night Live to add two black women to its cast and writer’s room mid-season, to name just a few.
