Spitfire Strategies

Beth Kanter

Chief Strategy Officer

Never at a loss for words, Beth helps her clients pick the right ones so they can bring their big ideas to life. Beth is a mile wide and much more than an inch deep on issues ranging from economic inequality and reproductive rights to immigration reform and gender equity. She is particularly skilled at working with nonprofits to craft creative strategies that get results because she’s walked in their shoes.

Currently, Beth is focused on several efforts to address poverty and economic inequality so that working families have a shot at realizing the American dream. She partners with state-based campaigns across the country to pass bills that guarantee earned sick days so that everyone can take time off if they get sick or need to take care of a sick child without losing a day’s pay, or worse, getting fired.

She was instrumental in a successful campaign to make key provisions of the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit permanent for America’s working families and collaborated with the Center for Community Change in an effort to reform our nation’s unjust immigration policies.

Beth developed Spitfire’s Smart Plan, a crisis communication tool that helps nonprofits anticipate and plan for crises. If a crisis strikes, Beth is on speed dial for many of Spitfire’s clients.
