About Rebecca Griffin

Rebecca Griffin, Political Director, Peace Action West

Rebecca Griffin, Political Director

In her role as political director, Rebecca Griffin tracks the pulse of Capitol Hill, as well as the perspective of regular Americans on America's top foreign policy challenges. She travels extensively through the western states and Washington, DC, organizing communities and bringing their message to policymakers.

She has directed campaigns to shift to a nonmilitary strategy in Afghanistan, end the war in Iraq, fund and reform civilian engagement through diplomacy and development, shift to a more balanced security budget through cutting wasteful military spending, and promote diplomacy with Iran. She also runs campaigns to educate and elect pro-peace congressional candidates through the Peace Action West Voter Fund.

In May 2009, Ms. Griffin traveled to Iran with a citizen diplomacy delegation to build people to people relationships and mobilize support for diplomacy between the US and Iran.

Ms. Griffin grew up in Springvale, Maine, and graduated from the University of New Hampshire. She has worked with Peace Action West since 2003.
