Melissa Thomey

Senior Digital Fundraiser

An EMILY's List and NARAL Pro-Choice America alumna, Melissa joined Stand.earth at the beginning of 2021 to serve as the senior digital fundraiser to lead strategy for the community giving team and support the shipping team's digital campaign goals.

Previous to joining the Stand team, Melissa acted as the Western Digital Director for NextGen America in the 2020 cycle. She managed key battleground states and supported a large digital get-out-the-vote effort aimed at mobilizing young people to vote in a year in which youth voter turnout set a record high.

After organizing in New Mexico in 2018 to elect Deb Haaland and Democrats up and down the ballot, Melissa grew to appreciate the intersectionality between feminism and environmental justice, leading her to join the fight to stop the climate crisis. Originally from Minnesota, she attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and currently resides in Chicago, Illinois with her cat, Lucifer.
