Special Projects & New Initiatives

Brynne Craig is a Senior Advisor at Bloomberg Philanthropies focused on Special Projects and New Initiatives, as well as overseeing research and evaluation.

Her work at Bloomberg Philanthropies encompasses both political and policy efforts, including oversight and coordination of Bloomberg Philanthropies advocacy work. Most recently she spearheaded the foundation’s response to the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, and advised on instrumental investments aimed at expanding voter access across the U.S. In her role, she draws on her expertise and knowledge to help in vital decision-making processes at the foundation, while also overseeing dedicated portfolios of work and devising and implementing strategies across teams to better organization-wide collaboration.

Prior to joining Bloomberg Philanthropies, Brynne was Senior Advisor to the President and Political Director at Everytown for Gun Safety. There, she created the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Program, a now sought-after distinction for candidates and officials at all levels of government, piloted a campaign bootcamp for volunteers who were thinking of running for office, and managed Everytown’s electoral program, including a multimillion independent expenditure program.

Craig is a seasoned political leader who has managed some of the largest and most consequential field and political operations of the past decade. She is a former campaign aide to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Secretary Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama, and Governor Terry McAuliffe and has served in senior roles at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic National Committee.

During the 2016 election cycle, Craig was National Deputy Director of State Campaigns and Political Engagement at Hillary for America, where she oversaw the campaign’s political operations and work with the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Brynne graduated from Smith College with majors in the Program for the Study of Women and Gender and Afro American studies. She currently lives in New York.
