Adam Bink brings more than a decade of experience in building and executing winning advocacy campaigns and communications plans. Adam’s talents include expertise in campaign planning along with rapid-response digital campaigning – harnessing a “moment” to turn on a dime and educate the public, win accountability, and enact reform. He also is a sought-after trainer in the areas of storytelling and message development, turning a complex issue into not just a digestible sound bite, but a story that moves advocates from online to offline and key targets from opposition to support. His clients include Housing California, NoVo Foundation, Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund and World Bicycle Relief.
He joined Spitfire from UltraViolet, where Adam led women’s health campaigns for nearly five years and helped mobilize people to win successful campaigns on sexual and domestic violence. These include forcing the NFL to revise its player personnel policy following abuse by prominent running back Ray Rice, and winning accountability for biased Judge Aaron Persky following his unjust decision in the 2014 “Emily Doe” rape case at Stanford University. He led UltraViolet’s efforts in defense of Planned Parenthood, the Affordable Care Act, and other institutions critical to women’s health while lifting up a diverse set of women’s voices and experiences. He also helped expand access to family planning and well-woman care in states like California and Louisiana while championing equity.
Prior to joining UltraViolet, Adam served as Director of Online Programs at Courage Campaign, California’s ProgressNow affiliate. While at Courage, he won progress at the ballot box, corporate boardroom, courts, and state legislature on a wide range of issues, including climate change, LGBTQ rights, investment in schools, and relief for those impacted by the foreclosure and mortgage crisis.
Adam began his career as Online Strategy Manager at Progressive Strategies, LLC in Washington, D.C from 2006-2011. He is a graduate of the University of Rochester and George Washington University’s Master’s in Political Management program. Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, he lives in Oakland. When not home trying new recipes, he’ll probably be found training for a race in the Oakland Hills – usually accompanied by a pup from Rocket Dog Rescue.
