Executive Director

A native of rural Maine, Claire Cummings has dedicated her career to uplifting working people in Vermont and across New England. During the 2020 election cycle, Claire was the Organizing Director for the VDP; prior to that, she was the statewide Deputy Field Director (ME) and Coös County Field Organizer (NH) for the Bernie 2020 campaign. She has also worked as a fundraiser, community organizer, and communications consultant for issues-based campaigns and organizations advocating for increased access to healthcare, education, and political engagement. When she's not politicking around New England, Claire can be found exploring the Green Mountains with her very adventurous pup, Ellie.
