Spitfire Strategies

Beth Kanter

Executive Vice President

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 health care and reproductive rights to economic inequality, immigration reform and gender equity. She is particularly skilled at working with nonprofits to develop and implement communication and campaign strategies that motivate target audiences to action.

Beth’s work with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Consumer Voices for Coverage program provides advocacy organizations with the communication skills they need to engage with health care consumers. 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 partnered with the Center for Community Change in an effort to reform our nation’s unjust immigration policies.

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.

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.
